Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Emily Dickinson: Wild nights — Wild nights!

Wild nights – Wild nights!
Were I with thee
Wild nights should be
Our luxury!

.

Futile – the winds –
To a Heart in port –
Done with the Compass –
Done with the Chart!

.

Rowing in Eden –
Ah – the Sea!
Might I but moor – tonight –
In thee!
