Emily Dickinson

The Brain, within its Groove

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was an American poet.






The Brain, within its Groove
Runs evenly—and true—
But let a Splinter swerve—
'Twere easier for You—

To put a Current back—
When Floods have slit the Hills—
And scooped a Turnpike for Themselves—
And trodden out the Mills—
