Wild nights

December 11, 2009

Yesterday, Stockholm celebrated the annual Nobel Prize Award Cermonies. Dear Jean, however, celebrated the memory and birthday of American poet Emily Dickinson (December 10, 1830 – May 15, 1886).

WILD NIGHTS
Wild nights! Wild nights!
Were I with thee,
Wild night should be
Our luxury!

Futile the winds
To a heart in port –
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart.

Rowing in Eden!
Ah! The sea!
Might I but moor
Tonight in thee!
