“I never saw a moor” by Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886)


“…And what a wave must be.
I never spoke with God,…”


I never saw a moor

By EMILY DICKINSON

I never saw a moor,
I never saw the sea;
Yet know I how the heather looks,
And what a wave must be.

I never spoke with God,
Nor visited in heaven;
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if the chart were given.
