Background

A description of the experience

 

Emily Dickinson – the Poems of Emily Dickinson

I had been hungry all the years
My noon had come to dine
I trembling drew the table near
And touched the curious wine

‘Twas this on tables I had seen
When turning hungry home
I looked in windows for the wealth
I could not hope for mine

The plenty hurt me ‘twas so new
Myself felt ill and odd
As berry of a mountain bush
Transplanted to the road

Nor was I hungry so I found
That hunger was a way
Of persons outside windows,
The entering takes away
