Wild Nights! Wild Nights!

Rating: 4.5
Wild Nights! Wild Nights!
Were I with thee,
Wild Nights should be
Our luxury!

Futile the winds
To a heart in port, --
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart!

Rowing in Eden!
Ah! the sea!
Might I but moor
To-night in Thee!
Emily Dickinson

Such love and tenderness glow in the eyes of this poem. How could her loved one help but be drawn to such a woman?

What an incredible, full-throated and yet demurely discreet poem of erotic desire. The middle stanza is such an elegant pivot from the no-holds-barred fantasy of the first stanza to the calm, fulfilling paradise of the close. The poem is both ravenous and generous in its expression of love and desire. Exquisite.

God didn't allow women much leeway in Eden. Think I'd have left that line out. Otherwise a very good poem
