An imagined childhood biography of Emily Dickinson’s poetic beginnings by celebrated children's author Jane Yolen.

Perhaps, she thinks, I’ll make a poem. 


Emily smiles.
The garden makes her feel all sunny,
like a poet.

As a young girl, Emily Dickinson loved to scribble curlicues and circles, imagine new rhymes, and connect with the bountiful flowers in her spring garden. The sounds, sights, and smells of home swirled through her mind and Emily began to explore writing and rhyming her feelings.

 

She thinks about the real and the unreal. Perhaps poems are the in-between.

This thoughtful spotlight on Emily’s early experimentation with poetry as a child offers a unique window into one of the world’s most famous and influential poets.
