Today is Emily Dickinson's birthday. She is one of my favorite poets. I have shared her poems many times here. I was reminded today (by Roger Ebert) of a poem by another one of my most favorite poets, Billy Collins.
Billy Collins wrote a mesmerizing poem titled
"Taking Off Emily Dickinson's Clothes".
I hope you have a moment to listen to this breathtakingly beautiful poem...
My interpretation of this poem? I see it as a deeply felt love poem from a man living now to a woman who lived in a different time. I understand it. I find it so moving. I sometimes feel that I was born in the wrong era..Perhaps that's why I find this poem truly special.
Thank you so much for visiting, lovely friends.
I hope your weekend is filled with sweet and tender moments...xo
