Poetry Friday: Some Things That Fly There Be by Emily Dickinson

April 16th, 2010 (08:10 am)
thirsty

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: I Could Be in Love With Someone Like You from The Last Five Years

Some things that fly there be,
Birds, hours, the bumble-bee:
Of these no elegy.

Some things that stay there be,
Grief, hills, eternity:
Nor this behooveth me.

There are, that resting, rise.
Can I expound the skies?
How still the riddle lies!

- by Emily Dickinson

I would have thought that I'd read all of Dickinson's poetry at some point, but I can't recall having read this one before. It made me think, in the good way.

I hadn't read it prior to this morning, either.
