Poetry Friday: It's All I Have to Bring To-day by Emily Dickinson

August 15th, 2008 (07:32 am)

Current Mood: sick
Current Song: I Have a Dream by ABBA

It's all I have to bring to-day,
This, and my heart beside,
This, and my heart, and all the fields,
And all the meadows wide.

Be sure you count, should I forget, --
Some one the sun could tell, --
This, and my heart, and all the bees
Which in the clover dwell.

- by Emily Dickinson

Oh, so beautiful. I love Emily. And meadows. :)

Ditto. I have dreamed and read of meadows, but I don't believe I've ever been in something I'd define as such.

Dude: someday. You, me. Acres of grassland, known as meadow.

Bring your Dickinson.

If I hadn't seen the subject line, I would have wondered what anonymous person left that invite! Hee hee.

This poem makes me picture her sitting at the base of a tree, looking out over the meadow, corny as that may sound.

Loveliness. And I'm so glad you put that Abba song in my head. Seriously. I love them.

Gracias y de nada. How I'd never heard that song until last month, I don't know.

Love the repetition of "this, and my heart"
