Today's poem (is even cooler if you read it as a devotional lyric)

Emily Dickinson

543 (1862)

I fear a Man of frugal Speech-
I fear a Silent Man-
Haranguer-I can overtake-
Or Babbler-entertain

But he who weigheth-While the Rest
Expend their furthest pound-
Of this-I am wary-
I fear that He is Grand-

You're right. That does make it even better.

"I fear a Silent Man-"

basically sums up the conundrum of my spiritual life.

It's even cooler if you sing it to "The Yellow Rose of Texas" . . .
