“Wild nights – Wild nights!” by Emily Dickinson

Wild nights – Wild nights!

Wild Nights – Wild Nights!
Were I with thee
Wild Nights should be
Our Luxury!

Futile – the winds –
To a Heart in port –
Done with the Compass –
Done with the Chart!

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



Emily Dickinson, 1830-1886
