Letter to the World

  This is my letter to the world,
       That never wrote to me, --
    The simple news that Nature told,
       With tender majesty.

    Her message is committed
       To hands I cannot see;
    For love of her, sweet countrymen,
       Judge tenderly of me!

Emily Dickinson.  Part I: Life

(that sounds like an excellent idea–writing a letter to the world.  I sort of have — in my journals, but that’s not the same thing.  They were never addressed to the world, and I could never do it with the same style and class as the Belle of Amherst.  Who could?)

If YOU were to write a letter to the world, what would you say?

    1. this got me thinking of writing a letter to the world for Cor Novus. I don’t think I would be as kind as Emily or Tina, but I have warm feelings for it anyway.
