It's true that I'm an English teacher and I studied poetry in the way way back times, but I never really understood or gravitated toward Emily Dickinson. I was more into Poe for poetry, or Edmund Spenser - both of who, now that I think of it, were writing fantasy stories more often than not. Anyway, when I was looking for the perfect poetry to use for TOTM, I searched the internet, hoping to find the right words that would fit the tone of my universe and not once, but twice, Emily Dickinson proved to be the best choice. I think I need to revisit her work and give it another go. Maybe I was just too young to get it when I was in university.
