Tell all the truth but tell it slantby Emily Dickinson – This came up in my writing class last night. I had forgotten about this poem until it popped back into my head. For your reading pleasure 🙂


Tell all the truth but tell it slant –

Success in Circuit lies

Too bring for our infirm Delight

The Truth’s superb surprise

As Lightning to the Children eased

With explanation kind

The Truth must dazzle gradually

Or every man be blind –

    • I think we are having e-mail problems 😦 I sent you a couple of emails about that and also to thank you for the Easter card! I did get your book, thank you, and I sadly haven’t had time to sit down and read it. On another note, remember when you couldn’t publish a comment on my blog for some reason? I found them. The comments got kicked into the spam filter for reasons unknown.

      • Oh you don’t need to read it, I just wanted you to check out that Cool Blue Cover, Lol

        Nah, just wanted to make sure they got it to you… Poetry is a very Personal thing, you don’t need to worry about giving me Feedback…

        You’re Welcome about the Easter Card, hope you had a Good one

        I Contacted Akismet (The Company WordPress uses to Protect from Spammers) about My Comments Going to People’s Spams, They Fixed it, it was any site that I replied to that wasn’t My Own Site

        I had an issue with an E-mail I sent to you as well, wasn’t sure the first one I sent got to you, because it didn’t show up in my Sent Section… So I sent you another one

        Anyway, I have another E-mail as well should you have anymore issues with my one

        Well that explains it, I just checked My Filters and you were being Blocked… That has happened with two other people, I’m not sure what is up with Gmail, but on occasion it Filters People at Random

        Sorry about that Shannon

        Argh, Technology, right

        Anyway, Glad you got it
