Lines by Heart: Ending by Emily Dickinson
The theme for our #DailyReadings in September is beginnings and endings. For this week's Lines by Heart challenge, National Hub Leader Esther Harsh recites Ending by Emily Dickinson. Put yourself to the test and see if you can memorise this poem to recite aloud.
That is solemn we have ended, —
Be it but a play,
Or a glee among the garrets,
Or a holiday,
Or a leaving home; or later,
Parting with a world
We have understood, for better
Still it be unfurled.
