your brain

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 than 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 .
-Emily Dickinson, “The Brain is wider than the Sky”
