Emily Dickenson

Did you know that you can sing most of Emily’s poems to either the Ballad of Gilligan’s Island or the Yellow Rose of Texas.  Here’s the scancion, resepectively:

I saw a funeral in my brain and mourners to and fro

here’s a yellow rose in Texas that I am going to see,


Because I could not stop for death he kindly stopped for me

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,

Try it. It’s fun.  Well, as long as you’re not a big Dickenson fan.  At least one my friends has never forgiven me for pointing this out to her.
