Amherst, with your silent “h”,
where the Chickwolopp once
ambled

I’ve held your hand, and stroked
your face, I’ve flower plucked,
herb sampled.

You’ve come to me,
weep willowed, gowned;
well read, red head, cum laude

and I’ve renamed you Emily
each letter said out-loudly.


An amusingly succinct letter of love to Emily Dickinson. --R.T. Castleberry
