“Wild Nights” by Emily Dickinson


After reading Emily’s poem below, please take a moment to listen to “Taking Off Emily Dickinson’s Clothes,” written by Billy Collins and read by Tom O’Bedlam. A marvelous poem.

Wild Nights – Wild Nights!

Emily Dickinson

Wild Nights – Wild Nights!
Were I with thee
Wild Nights 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 moor – Tonight –
In thee!
