A description of the experience

The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson – Emily Dickinson

I prayed at first a little girl
Because they told me to
But stopped when qualified to guess
How prayer would feel to me

If I believed God looked around
Each time my childish eye
Fixed full and steady on his own
In childish honesty

And told him what I’d like today
And parts of his far plan
That baffled me
The mingled side
Of his Divinity

The source of the experience
