Read Selected Poems Online Free - Emily Dickinson was born into a prominent New England family. Sociable as a child, she grew increasingly withdrawn, and in later years became known as a recluse.
Only seven of her poems were published during her lifetime. After Emily's death in 1886, her sister Lavinia discovered 1,775 poems bound in small packets tied with thread.
They were first published in 1890, attracting unexpected attention in literary circles. With spare, precise language, Emily Dickinson conveyed a penetrating vision of the natural world and an acute understanding of the most profound human truths.

There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot

The Roadblocks covered all three lanes
A narrow Fellow - in the grass
With one eyed – snake – and smile
You may have met him – did you not
The local – paedo – phile
I heard a Boy-Band - when I died
The Radio - was on

"We grow up accustomed to the Dark"
We grow accustomed to the Dark –
When Light is put away –
As when the Neighbor holds the Lamp
To witness her Goodbye –
A Moment - We uncertain step
For newness of the night –
Then – fit our Vision to the Dark –
And meet the Road – erect –
And so of larger – Darknesses –...

"Kar yağarken geldin
Toprak eski haline dönerken gideceksin
Karganın tatlı alayı
Ve yükselen sesiyle Neşenin
Korku içinde geldin
Öyle şen bir gidişle gideceksin ki
İnsanlar yeniden hayata açılacak
Senin derinlerine - "
"Bir sözcük ölür, söylendiğinde,
Ben derim ki dünyaya o gün
