Fall Poetry with Emily

I love how many exclamation points she uses in this poem. I tend to use them excessively. What punctuation mark do you find yourself using a lot?

As I stated in this blog post I will be posting Emily Dickinson’s poetry for a while.

A Lady red – amid the Hill

Her annual secret keeps!

A Lady white, within the Field

In placid Lily sleeps!


The tidy Breezes, with their Brooms

Sweep vale – and hill – and tree!

Prithee, My pretty Housewives!

Who may expected be?


The Neighbors do not yet suspect!

The Woods exchange a smile!

Orchard, and Buttercup, and Bird –

In such a little while!


And yet, how still the Landscape stands!

How nonchalant the Hedge!

As if the “Resurrection”

Were nothing very strange!
