A Bit of Emily

Portraits are to daily faces
As an evening west
To a fine, pedantic sunshine
In a satin vest.

Whoa...did you create that picture?

I can seriously see an entire book of famous author's with dog/animal heads being a big seller.

And that's a beautiful verse!

Well it looks like your photoshop skillz are on the rise. I think Emily would like this. She clearly had a wicked sense of humor.

What a sweet and intelligent-looking doggie. I love her lovely black nose and her long, svelte neck!

And a lovely verse, too, I might add.

When I first read that poem I thought it said feces... instead of faces... My bad.

Why, I never! Emily Dickinson never wrote about feces! She wrote about a fly landing on the eye of a recently dead person, and a bird eating a worm, but feces?! Never! :-)

Emily is my fave, and I haven't seen this one in, well, a dog's age! The poem would have been enough; the portrait makes this one sublime post. Thank you!
