Featured Poem: A Slash of Blue by Emily Dickinson
Our Featured Poem is brought to us by The Reader's, Emma Taylor. Today’s choice is ‘A Slash of Blue’ by Emily Dickinson, a foreboding war poem rich with colour and hidden metaphors.
A sweep of Gray --
Some scarlet patches on the way,
Compose an Evening Sky --

Some Ruby Trousers hurried on --
A Wave of Gold --
A Bank of Day --
This just makes out the Morning Sky.
