Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part One: Life

Epigram


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        5
  To hands I cannot see;
For love of her, sweet countrymen,
  Judge tenderly of me!
