Emily Dickinson –

Considering the current events I think this poem is fitting.  Emily is among the best of poets.  I’ve read hundreds and hundreds of her poems yet hadn’t read this until a close colleague shared it today.  Enjoy.

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 —
