Emily Dickinson put two day lilies into Higginson’s hand and said, “‘These are my introduction’ and ‘Forgive me if I am frightened.’ This is how I feel every time I share a poem. They are my introduction. I need to give these to you—it is a compulsion—but at the same time, I am frightened to give them to you.”
– Emily Bobo
