The poetry of Emily Dickinson shares the meter (and therefore can be sung to) the tunes of both The Yellow Rose of Texas and the theme to Gilligan’s Island.

It was not death, for I stood up,
And all the dead lie down.
It was not night, for all the bells
Put out their tongues for noon.

I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows –
Superior – for Doors –



  1. Thanks. Now I can’t get “The Yellow Rose” out of my mind!
