Indian Pipes: Emily Dickinson Series
Emily Elizabeth Dickinson: December 10, 1830 to May 15, 1886
This woodland plant was a favorite of Emily's. Emily always wore white after finding this plant in the woods one summer near her home in Amherst, MA.
She would often take home and put in her own garden to enjoy.
A poem was written by Emily Dickinson, no title - in true Miss. Dickinson style!

Part Four: Time and Eternity
’T IS whiter than an Indian pipe,
’T is dimmer than a lace;
No stature has it, like a fog,
When you approach the place.
Not any voice denotes it here, 5
Or intimates it there;
A spirit, how doth it accost?
What customs hath the air?
This limitless hyperbole
Each one of us shall be; 10
’T is drama, if (hypothesis)
It be not tragedy!
