The More You Know

Emily Bobo (courtesy of the poet).

“Thomas Wentworth Higginson wrote that Emily Dickinson came to him with two day lilies which she put in a sort of childlike way into his hand and said, “These are my introduction” and “Forgive me if I am frightened.” This is how I feel every time I share a poem. They are my introduction. I need to give these to you—it is a compulsion—but at the same time, I am frightened to give them to you.”
– Emily Bobo
