Dickinson on poetry

by on 27/05/04 at 8:56 pm

If I read a book [and] it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only way [sic] I know it. Is there any other way. –Emily Dickinson
