Words to the World **
by David L. Davis - Autumn '98
One firmly planted in the Heavens -
Her Eyes affixed upon the Earth above -
Separated - yet always Connected -
As Events unfurled, clothed in all white she did Observe.
ever changing as if curtains -
Before the window near her Sight -
Watching Society running to and fro -
Searching for the meaning, of what Life is all about.
Society driven by its fear of Death -
Could tarnish even one's Soul -
Look how Nature embodies this endless cycle of Life and
Why can't Mankind accept - its fate?
Body safely Hidden -
A Soul untouched from Stains -
A Voice heard only in Letters and Verse -
While she sat silently, continuing to Observe.
** a special poem written
to Honor Emily Dickinson,
and to her great Poems that she wrote to the World.
