The Soul Selects Her Own Society

Emily Dickinson

 Next Poem          

The Soul selects her own Society --
Then -- shuts the Door --
To her divine Majority --
Present no more --

Unmoved -- she notes the Chariots -- pausing --
At her low Gate --
Unmoved -- an Emperor be kneeling
Upon her Mat --

I've known her -- from an ample nation --
Choose One --
Then -- close the Valves of her attention --
Like Stone --

    Just finished reading "The Soul Selects Her Own Society". It's a powerful piece about the unique nature of personal choice and introspection. Dickinson really captures the essence of individuality and self-reliance in this work. It's enlightening and thought-provoking!
