Emily Dickinson wrote over 1700 poems! And for such a reclusive person, she had powerful insight into life, and death. This is one of my favourites, very passionate.

“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!"

by Emily Dickinson

Apophysis and PI12.
