The Brain Is Wider Than The Sky

The Brain — is wider than the Sky —
For—put them side by side —
The one the other will contain
With ease — and You—beside —

The Brain is deeper than the sea —
For—hold them — Blue to Blue —
The one the other will absorb —
As Sponges — Buckets — do —

The Brain is just the weight of God —
For — Heft them — Pound for Pound —
And they will differ — if they do —
As Syllable from Sound

Poem by Emily Dickinson
