Emily Dickinson Poems

(Dickinson wrote thousands of poems; these are among her best known)

"Because I could not stop for death"
"I heard a fly buzz when I died"
"Hope is the thing with feathers"
"My life closed twice before its close"
"I felt a Funeral, in my brain"
"The Soul selects her own society"
"There is no frigate like a book"
"There's a certain slant of light"
"I'm Nobody! Who are you?"
"Safe in their Alabaster chambers"
