THIS IS MY LETTER TO THE WORLD – 11 January 2009

For today I’ve chosen this poem by the American poet Emily Dickinson:

THIS IS MY LETTER TO THE WORLD
By Emily Dickinson
(10 December 1830–15 May 1886)

This is my letter to the world,
That never wrote to me, –
The simple news that Nature told,
With tender majesty.

Her message is committed
To hands I cannot see;
For love of her, sweet countrymen,
Judge tenderly of me!

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
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.
