(1 Feb 2012 – Below is a poem written by my maternal Cousin Emily Elizabeth Dickinson where she speaks in poetry of LOVE not understood – despite the use of words or wisdom. ENJOY the genius of this poetess! dht)
[Emily Elizabeth Dickinson Poem #568]
We learned the Whole of Love –
The Alphabet – the Words –
A Chapter – then the mighty Book –
Then – Revelation closed –
But in Each Other's eyes
An Ignorance beheld –
Diviner than the Childhood's –
And each to each, a Child –
Attempted to expound
What Neither – understood –
Alas, that Wisdom is so large –
And Truth – so manifold!
How many words are needed to tell those you LOVE what is in your HEART? How long the verse? The Chapter? The Book? Perhaps LOVE cannot be explained in words -– the Language of the HEART!
The saying is in the showing – not the verb!
