Miss Dickinson makes me happy.

I Dwell In Possibility
# 657

I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows –
Superior – for Doors –

Of Chambers as the Cedars –
Impregnable of Eye –
And for an Everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky –

Of Visitors – the fairest –
For Occupation – This –
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –

– Emily Dickinson

Incidentally, I was reading about this poem in an interview with artist Chuck Ritchie on his website.  I came upon this drawing of his the other day and was awestruck that it could’ve been made by hand!
