There was some exciting news in literary circles this week-- after 150 years, the only known photo of Emily Dickinson as an adult was discovered! Donated from a private collection in Massachusetts, the daguerrotype, taken around 1859, features the woman believed to be Emily Dickinson sitting next to her friend, Kate Scott Turner. The only other known picture of Dickinson was taken in 1847, when she was a teenager.
That's Emily on the left. I think she has very, very kind eyes.
III. Nature, XXVIII, Autumn
The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I’ll put a trinket on.
