"Nature" Is What We See

668

"Nature" is what we see—
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse—the Bumble bee—
Nay—Nature is Heaven—
Nature is what we hear—
The Bobolink—the Sea—
Thunder—the Cricket—
Nay—Nature is Harmony—
Nature is what we know—
Yet have no art to say—
So impotent Our Wisdom is
To her Simplicity.

by Emily Dickinson

FOUR: A true and pure love poem, I like very much, but it seemed CM hid himself in his poems. A thought-provoking poem and very well worded, after all he got his Masters' degree and
THREE: Such a life he needed not to be involved with, but that is CM his own being! Could be a person be gay by birth? Or had he done his choice? . This part of him I dislike.
TWO: the content is oft fully worded, archaic for now, but ordinary language in his period. I like CM's poems very much, the longer we read, the more meaning they get. His life is a very tragic one.
ONE: This part belongs to two other parts: the first and yhe second sestiad, and these three poems must be read altogether. Thank you for publishing Christopher Marlowe's poems, except archaic words,
In each respect! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
