Charlotte Bronte's Grave
I was totally unaware of this poem. If you are a Bronte fan-a must read.
This poem written by Emily Dickinson is actually alluding to the death of Charlotte. Emily sees Charlotte as a little bird who has suffered and at last has entered the pearly gates of heaven; her final resting home.
"Gathered from many wanderings,
Gethsemane can tell
Through what transporting anguish
She reached the asphodel!...Soft fall the sounds of Eden
Upon her puzzled ear;
Oh, what an afternoon for heaven,
When 'Bronte' entered there!"
