Blair Road Morning with Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson wrote to Thomas Wentworth Higginson, "I think you would like the chestnut tree I met in my walk. It hit my notice suddenly, and I thought the skies were in blossom."

Blair Road hit my notice suddenly.

In another note to Higginson, Emily wrote, "I was thinking to-day, as I noticed, that the 'Supernatural' was only the Natural disclosed.
Not "Revelation" 't is that waits,
But our unfurnished eyes."
