Emily Dickinson – 26 March 2008
Emily Dickinson, who was born in Amherst, Massachusetts 10 December
1830, wrote nearly three thousand short poems during her last
twenty-six years. Only three of these were published in her lifetime.
She died 15 May 1886 and at her funeral, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, a
popular writer, read Emily Brontë’s “No Coward Soul Is Mine,” which is
also known as “Last Lines.” (http://www.all-creatures.org/poetry/lastlines.html)

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886)
I never saw a moor,
I never saw the sea;
Yet know I how the heather looks,
And what a wave must be.
I never spoke with God,
Nor visited in heaven;
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if the chart were given.

No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
