EMILY DICKINSON

Biography

If I can stop on heart from breaking

Wild Nights Wild Nights

Theres a certain Slant of light

Im Nobody! Who are you?

Heaven is what I cannot reach!

After great pain, a formal feeling comes--

The Brain is wider than the Sky

This is my letter to the World

The Soul selects her own Society

I felt a Cleaving in my Mind

Tell all the Truth but tell it slant
