Inspired by Emily

I stumbled across this wonderful poem, and was recently reminded of it after several years.

Tell all the Truth but tell it slant -
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise

As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind - 

Emily Dickinson
