In this short life

Once again Emily Dickinson gives us a lot to think about in a short poem. This poem is only 4 lines long; what did it make you think of?



In this short Life

That only lasts an hour

How much – how little – is

Within our power

  1. This poem made me think that it’s within our power to be thankful, and focus on the good ‘In this short life’. Everything else is pretty much out of our control.

    • It makes me want to move! It makes me realize that we’ve only got so many years to foster change in this world, and help those we can, before our time is done.
      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts Wendy!
