Opening Poems by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)


"This is My Letter to the World"


This is my letter to the world,

That never wrote to me, --,

The simple news that Nature told,

With tender majesty.

Her message is committed,

To hands I cannot see;

For love of her, sweet countrymen,

Judge tenderly of me!


Drawn from page 19 of the Dover Edition of Selected Poems of Emily Dickenson


"There is No Frigate Like a Book"


There is no frigate like a book

To take us lands away,

Nor any coursers like a page

Of prancing poetry.


This traverse may the poorest take

Without oppress of toll:

How frugal is the chariot

That bears a human soul!


Drawn from page 48 of the Dover Edition of Selected Poems of Emily Dickenson

Also on page 758 in Perrine’s Literature


"I'm Nobody"


I'm nobody! Who are you?

Are you nobody, too?

Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!

They'd banish us, you know.


How dreary to be somebody!

How public, like a frog

To tell your name the livelong day

To an admiring bog!

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

IN SEVEN PARTS

By Samuel Taylor Coleridge


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Facile credo, plures esse Naturas invisibiles quam visibiles in rerum universitate. Sed horum omnium familiam quis nobis enarrabit ? et gradus et cognationes et discrimina et singulorum munera ? Quid agunt ? quae loca habitant ? Harum rerum notitiam semper ambivit ingenium humanum, nunquam attigit. Juvat, interea, non diffiteor, quandoque in animo, tanquam in tabulâ, majoris et melioris mundi imaginem contemplari : ne mens assuefacta hodiernae vitae minutiis se contrahat nimis, et tota subsidat in pusillas cogitationes. Sed veritati interea invigilandum est, modusque servandus, ut certa ab incertis, diem a nocte, distinguamus. - T. Burnet, Archaeol. Phil., p. 68 (slightly edited by Coleridge).


Translation: I can easily believe, that there are more invisible than visible Beings in the universe. But who shall describe for us their families? and their ranks and relationships and distinguishing features and functions? What they do? where they live? The human mind has always circled around a knowledge of these things, never attaining it. I do not doubt, however, that it is sometimes beneficial to contemplate, in thought, as in a Picture, the image of a greater and better world; lest the intellect, habituated to the trivia of daily life, may contract itself too much, and wholly sink into trifles. But at the same time we must be vigilant for truth, and maintain proportion, that we may distinguish certain from uncertain, day from night.


-- T. Burnet, Archaeol. Phil. p. 68 (1692)

ARGUMENT



How a Ship having passed the Line was driven by storms to the cold Country towards the South Pole ; and how from thence she made her course to the tropical Latitude of the Great Pacific Ocean ; and of the strange things that befell ; and in what manner the Ancyent Marinere came back to his own Country.
