This Thursday, 12/13/12, I’ll join twenty other fabulous poets to read at the Annual Gathering of the Poets Emily Dickinson Birthday Bash. The reading, which is hosted by Dave Parsons and the Montgomery County Literary Arts Council, will take place at at 7 PM at The Corner Pub in Conroe, TX. We’ll each read one poem of Emily’s and one of our own. I’ve selected the lovely little poem, “How happy is the little Stone” for both the birthday reading and this week’s Mnemosyne Weekly. My favorite thing about memorizing Emily Dickinson poems is having her unusual syntax, slant rhymes, and coupling of the concrete and abstract bouncing around in my head. I hope you enjoy this one too–
That rambles in the Road alone,
doesn’t care about Careers
And Exigencies never fears
Whose Coat of elemental Brown
Universe put on,
And independent as the
Associates or glows alone,
In casual simplicity —
