"Emily Dickinson" is so brief that I don't want to post a block of it, for fear of overstepping copyright bounds. So I'll just entice you with this one line:

Read the whole thing here, at The Writer's Almanac.
For other delightful things about Emily Dickinson but not by her, don't miss "Emily Dickinson Attends a Writing Workshop" as well as this delightful piece, A Pencil for Emily Dickinson, at tweetspeak.
