As of right now, this poem has supplanted The Road Not Taken as my favorite poem. Robert Frost will always be my favorite poet, but since I live not too far from Miss Dickinson’s Amherst, and because I’m determined to keep the post office in business by myself, this is my favorite poem du jour:
This is my letter to the world
That never wrote to me
The simple news that Nature told
With tender majesty.
Her message is committed
To hands I cannot see
For love of her sweet countrymen
Judge tenderly of me.
