Shutting Me Up in Verse

>> December 29, 2009

I don't think I'll ever begin to write here till I feel at home. You know, like the colours and the interiors, and figure out a nice cosy spot to just let be at. I was hoping that I don't keep dabbling around with the template because I am kind of compulsive like that; but I think this is going to stick with me for a while.
Emily Dickinson is among my favourite poets; and there were a couple of lines by her I was hoping to personalize here at the blog. She writes about the simpler, and perhaps, the harder things to write about - and makes the most poignant statements with such utter brevity and humility.

So, here's to a new, shiny, sparkly sort of truth :))

Tell all the Truth but tell it slant—
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise

As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind—
                                                       ~ Emily Dickinson, Tell all the Truth, but tell it slant
