NYBG Exhibit: Emily Dickinson's woodlands and gardens

Post by Jenny » Wed Apr 28, 2010 10:18 am

Should be interesting. I didn't even know she had such extensive gardens and woodlands. Her poetry will be incorporated.

Here's a poem and 2 short videos about the exhibit installation. Go to http://www.nybg.ord for more info

How many Flowers fail in Wood --
Or perish from the Hill --
Without the privilege to know
That they are Beautiful --

How many cast a nameless Pod
Upon the nearest Breeze --
Unconscious of the Scarlet Freight --
It bear to Other Eyes --

Maybe we should Ed! I'll study up more on her.

Thanks for posting part 3.

Ed and Jenny,

We have an Emily Dickinson Tree on the William Cullen Bryant Homestead. I have measured a number of trees on the Dickinson estate. There are several gorgeous tuliptrees there.

Emily Dickinson can be so absorbed by death in her poetry to the point it's unpleasant to read---even the flowers fall and perish without privilege, as if they were consumptive as well---I'll take Dylan Thomas' perspective over Emily's anytime( Rage, rage against the dying of the light. )
every plant is native somewhere
