Wild Nights! Wild Nights!

Mary Ann Reilly

Ringwood, United States

Artist's Description

For a woman considered to be a virgin spinster, I often wondered about Emily Dickinson’s most erotic poem about wild nights, rowing, and mooring within another. A tribute, this.

—Emily Dickinson
Wild nights! Wild nights!
Were I with thee,
Wild nights should be
Our luxury!
Futile the winds
To a heart in port,
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart.
Rowing in Eden!
Ah! the sea!
Might I but moor
To-night in thee!
