Emily Dickinson
By: Abby Saber, Ashley Leppek, Cindy Alexander, Haley Klein, and Shelby Rampolo Secrets The skies can't keep their secret!
They tell it to the hills-
The hills just tell the orchards-
And they the daffodils!

A bird, by chance, that goes that way
Soft overheard the whole.
If I should bribe the little bird, Who knows but she would tell?

I think I won't, however,
It's finer not to know;
If summer were an axiom,
What sorcery had snow?

So keep your secret, Father!
I would not, if I could,
Know what the sapphire fellows do,
In your new-fashioned world!



Axiom: a self-evident truth that requires no proof

Speaker: Someone enjoying nature,and wondering how God created it. (Possibly the author)

Tone: Curious (About how God created everything)








Nature and God Love is anterior to life,
Posterior to death,
Initial of creation, and
The exponent of breath. Untitled Love Untitled In this short Life
That only lasts an hour
How much-how little-is
Within our power Life and Death Background Information
