Happy Valentine’s Day!

For you, my readers, loved and cherished by me.
I don’t know all of you, but it is a tremendous delight to know that you exist and that my writing is not a forest tree falling in solitude.

I have chosen a poem for you, by Emily Dickinson. She is also beloved by me. She was insistently creative, prolific and terse. She pondered her experiences and captured them in words. Here is one of her poems for you:

Come Slowly
by Emily Dickinson

Come slowly, Eden
Lips unused to thee.
Bashful, sip thy jasmines,
As the fainting bee,
Reaching late his flower,
Round her chamber hums,
Counts his nectars -alights,
And is lost in balms!
