National Poetry Month: Poem of the Week

Poetry

Welcome to April and this month is a great time to brush off those winter blues because is National Poetry Month, an event that increases awareness and participation of great poetry that is out there. I am a great lover of poetry and what great way to show my appreciation of the poetic form than by publishing a classic poem! So, every beginning of the week for the month of April, I’ll publish poems from popular poets. Let’s start the month off right with some great poetry!

Happy Reading!

Publication – is the Auction (788) By Emily Dickinson

Publication – is the Auction
Of the Mind of Man –
Poverty – be justifying
For so foul a thing
Possibly – but We – would rather
From Our Garret go
White – unto the White Creator –
Than invest – Our Snow –
Thought belong to Him who gave it –
Then – to Him Who bear
It’s Corporeal illustration – sell
The Royal Air –
In the Parcel – Be the Merchant
Of the Heavenly Grace –
But reduce no Human Spirit
To Disgrace of Price –
