"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.

Best poem
Dickenson invented a brilliant form of punctuation, using dashes to represent commas, semi colons, colons, periods. It is in the way she used them. This is an important usage that has been ignored and forgotten. Perhaps a more stunning and simple way of writing poetry.
