Emily Dickinson

Yesterday I went to Amherst, MA and visited the Eric Carle Museum and also the home (and now museum of) Emily Dickinson.

In case (like me) it's been many years since reading Emily Dickinson in school, below is one of her 1800+ poems.

If I can stop one Heart from breaking
I shall not live in vain
If I can ease one Life the Aching
Or cool one Pain

Or help one fainting Robin
Unto his Nest again
I shall not live in Vain.
- Emily Dickinson
