As part of a national poetry project called Branching Out, Irish poet Eamon Grennan visits Kansas City this Saturday to talk about the work of Emily Dickinson. Here, Grennan reads and discusses Dickinson's poem At Half past Three, a single Bird.
At Half past Three, a single Birdby Emily Dickinson
At Half past Three, a single BirdUnto a silent SkyPropounded but a single termOf cautious melody.
At Half past Four, ExperimentHad subjugated testAnd lo, Her silver PrincipleSupplanted all the rest.
At Half past Seven, ElementNor Implement, be seen --And Place was where the Presence wasCircumference between.
