You're so right, Karen. Wouldn't change a thing of those five lines! Thank goodness for revery, bees, and Emily.
Those are such perfect lines. Emily and revery equals luxury.
I think my FAVORITE Emily book last year was Susan Snively's Poetry for Kids (which Jama reviewed) where there are lovely illustrations of all of the poems. I love the brevity of that prairie poem, and the illustrations just took it over the top.
Tanita, the illustrations in that book are dreamy! I love them! Brenda and Tabatha, thanks for joining in the revery today. :)
Sigh, thanks for this Friday gift of Emily. Perfection is the way to describe this poem. A small miracle it is. . .
I do think you're right--perfection. Copying into my commonplace right now!
I need a little Emily every day, so thank you! Just saw the wonderful ED exhibit at the Morgan Library in NYC. :-) Christie @ https://wonderingandwondering.wordpress.com/blog/
Every day is a good day for a little Emily!
Five perfect lines - just right, Karen. Thank you!
Any time is a good time for Emily.
So happy to be sharing Emily's perfection with my fellow Emily fangirls! :)
Ahh...I'm sad that bees are becoming few, but good to remember that no matter what, we will always be capable of revery!
Ah... Emily! I saw a bee today checking out my lavender that is just about to present itself.
Thanks for Emily Dickinson's poem Karen, it's perfect. Here's a short poem inspired by her poem "To make a prairie."Haloed Honey BeeI saw a honey beebusy in my backyard, and around it danced a halo of reverie,for only me to see.© 2017 Michelle Kogan
I see Mary Lee already said it, but I was thinking as I read this that bees ARE few!
