The Heart and Wild Nights of a Bluebird

It’s all I have to bring to-day,

It’s all I have to bring to-day,
This, and my heart beside,
This, and my heart, and all the fields,
And all the meadows wide.
Be sure you count, should I forget, —
Someone the sum could tell, —
This, and my heart, and all the bees
Which in the clover dwell.

 Wild nights–wild nights!

Wild nights–wild nights!
Were I with thee
Wild nights should be
our luxury!

Futile the winds
To heart in port–
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart!

Rowing in Eden–
As the sea!
Might I moor, tonight,
In thee!

~~ Emily Dickinson ~~

For a dear friend who knows the reasons why I love metaphors.

    Interesting list. Because I’m not a user of this gadget ‘Nintendo wii’, I guess I have to familliarize myself with it first in order to appreciate the metaphor it conveys. I’m more at ease with analog symbolism. Thanks for the information.
