A Poem

7 Mar

Blog Post #318

Today is Tuesday and that usually means “Haikuesday” — but today, I have nothing, nada, zip, zero. So … no haiku!

Instead, I found one of my favourite poems that I want to share with you. I have loved this poem ever since I first read it in high school many, many years ago.

I still love it.

I hope you enjoy it.

Dock on the lake
I stepped from plank to plank
So slow and cautiously;
The stars about my head I felt,
About my feet the sea.

I knew not but the next
Would be my final inch,–
This gave me that precarious gait
Some call experience.

~ Emily Dickinson
