“I Died for Beauty” by Emily Dickinson


I love Emily Dickinson’s poetry and had to share this poem!  She had such a strong connection with nature and a profound love of all things beautiful.  She loved Beauty with such passion that she would die for it, as she expresses in this poem.  She also addresses the philosophical idea of the interconnection between Beauty and Truth.  Keats once said “Truth is Beauty, Beauty is Truth”.  Enjoy the reading.  It is a brilliant masterpiece!  Emily deserves all the immortality she ever gained for the prose she shared with us.
