Twelve poems by Emily Dickinson
Nature, the gentlest mother: There came a wind like a bugle; Why do they shut me out of Heaven?; The world feels dusty; Heart, we will forget him; Dear March, come in!; Sleep is supposed to be; When they come back; I felt a funeral in my brain; I've heard an organ talk sometimes; Going to Heaven; The Chariot
June WUson (soprano)
Clifton Helliwell (piano)
