In the old cemetery, Amherst



"And now it seems to me the beautiful uncut hair of graves."

I found Emily Dickinson's grave after much searching in the old Amherst Cemetery.It was during a torrential downpour and the inscription on her grave almost unreadable through the rain said 'she was called back'..so glad no one put her on hold, the woman had been waiting long enough for something.

So spooky! Always a little bit of Whitman in Dickinson, and vice versa -- one lesson of the semester!
