Dickinson Friday: 1129

Tell all the Truth but tell it slant —
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise

As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —

very cool.

we're doing a poetry memorization program in our homeschool. We just did The Little Man Who Wasn't there, by Hughs Mearns:

As I was walking up the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today,
I wish, I wish, he's stay away.
