The brain is wider…

Lines Written In Early Spring

The Brain – is wider than the Sky –
For – put them side by side –
The one the other will contain
With ease – and You – beside –

The Brain is deeper that the sea –
For – hold them – Blue to Blue –
The one the other will absorb –
As sponges – buckets do –

The Brain is just the weight of God –
For – Heft them – pound for pound –
And they will differ – if they do –
As Syllable from Sound –

by Emily Dickinson
