On this day Chastena visited with the American poet, Emily Dickinson. Ms. Dickinson would have died in 1886, only a few years before this clipping was selected to appear in Chastena’s private collection. In our family, poetry was always a centerpiece. I think it was far more appreciated at this time than it is today where it’s nearly a lost art and poetry books languish on store shelves. What a shame. I’m so happy to share these with my children.
