Mobile Photography/Art – Saturday Poetry – ‘Ample Make This Bed’ by Emily Dickinson

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is a poem entitled ‘Ample Make This Bed’ by Emily Dickinson. This poem, it is said has two meanings, one that the poet is speaking about a sensual moment that she is intending to spend with her companion, or fantasising about it and the other notion, is that she is preparing her deathbed. In as much as she is trying to ensure that when the time comes, everything is perfect.

For me, I align myself with the former, not least because several weeks ago, Kevin and I ordered a new bed and we are very excited about it being delivered next Tuesday. It has been handmade and is the most luxurious bed you can buy in England. It’s vast, far larger than our current bed and we have purchased the most delicious very high thread count new sheets. So, Christmas for us, will be spent in this entire location (we hope).

I hope you enjoy this poem, I have matched Trishg61’s ‘What you don’t know, you don’t miss’ image with this poetry. The poet has used the punctuation marks for channelizing the flow of the poem. Dickinson has also broken the sentences in such a way, that the readers would understand the flow of the expressions better. The poet has stopped at points, where she wanted to capture a frame of expression.

Ample make this bed.

Make this bed with awe;

In it wait till judgment break

Excellent and fair.

Be its mattress straight,

Be its pillow round;

Let no sunrise’ yellow noise

Interrupt this ground”.
