Everything Emily

I read at an Emily Dickinson tribute reading yesterday afternoon. I thought everyone would be reading her famous poems, so I picked out a more obscure poem "I Started Early--Took My Dog." Someone else read it, so I figured I should just read the poem I think is the most famous: "Because I Could Not Stop For Death, He Kindly Stopped For Me." It was a fun reading, and I really liked how everyone was reading a poet who wasn't there.

Next weekend, I am driving to Emily Dickinson's house. Maybe I'll read some more poems, and a bit of White Heat and declare it Emily Dickinson Month!
