Poem by Emily Elizabeth Dickinson

* * *

Drama's Vitallest Expression is the Common Day
That arise and set about Us
Other Tragedy

Perish in the Recitation
Thisthe best enact
When the Audience is scattered
And the Boxes shut

"Hamlet" to Himself were Hamlet
Had not Shakespeare wrote
Though the "Romeo" left no Record
Of his Juliet,

It were infinite enacted
In the Human Heart
Only Theatre recorded
Owner cannot shut
