Today's Poem/by Emily Dickinson

A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown –
Who ponders this tremendous scene –
This whole Experiment of Green –
As if it were his own!
Emily Dickinson


  1. Nan, Just wanted you to know that I have nominated your blog for a Thinking Blog Award. :-)

  2. I just love Emily Dickenson's poetry. Thank you for posting one of her poems.

  3. Oh, Rapunzel, thank you so, so much for the nomination, and for your kind words. I just today read a great quote from Mark Twain:
    "I can live two months on a good compliment."
    How true. How warm my heart feels.

    I must decline, though, because I was nominated before. Now, you may choose another blog you love to read. I will certainly be visiting the ones you mentioned.

    Thank you, again, my friend.

  4. And Literary Feline, I think we all feel "a little madness" this time of year. Mad with the warmth, the breezes, the melting snow, and something inside that can't be expressed. Thanks for stopping by.


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
