Emily's Best Poem


Last Words From A Weaver's Basket

There was a garden for a mile

just for you and me;

sit with me for awhile,

while the lilies weave by the sea.


By the mossy shore, the ocean sighs,

where a covert cove hides,

its fingers upon the harpsichord;

resplendent is the light through the plank boards.


Wait with me for a tear

while I echo here—

spirits weaving a basket into a braid,

sit here, while I am afraid. 


--Emily Isaacson, Hallmark

Elizabeth Barett Browning

Albert Chevallier Taylor. Painted 1909.


 Where the ferns swagger

and the truth lilies blow, 
the torrents of the ocean gather, 
and the storm currents go.
