Emily Dickinson

The tenth Poem of the Week is by one of the poets on the Leaving Certificate cycle, the great American writer Emily Dickinson. It is number 333 in the collected edition (out of 1775), and, as always, has no title. It starts :-

The Grass so little has to do -
A Sphere of Simple Green -
With only Butterflies to Brood -

And Bees to Entertain -

The full poem is here.

The Academy of American Poets page on Dickinson is here, and the Dickinson Electronic Archives here.
