How much—how little—is within our power.

Envelope Poems 
By Emily Dickinson

Picked this one up on a whim during a gift shop visit, a gift for me. I'm gravitating towards poems in the winter and letting the words blanket me with comfort. Emily's envelope poems also remind me of my post-it note poems,  and more recently, my aqua-note poems & scribblings, capturing all the musings that fall with the shower downpour.

In this short life 
that only lasts an hour
How much — how little —
is within our power.
