Portrait of Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886)

Emily Dickinson

Drawing made by Corina Karstenberg © 2013


She rose to His Requirement – dropt

The Playthings of Her Life

To take the honorable Work

Of Woman, and of Wife


If ought She missed in Her new Day,

Of Amplitude, or Awe

Or first Prospective – Or the Gold

In using, wear away,


It lay unmentioned – as the Sea

Develope Pearl, and Weed

But only to Himself – be known

The Fathoms they abide


Poem by Emily Dickinson written in 1924

    Erg mooi getroffen. Ik zie ook triestheid in haar blik, kan ook heel goed kloppen.

    Liefs van Loes
