Her knowledge of the natural world profoundly influenced her poetry, her gardens inspiring the language and metaphors of her poems. This stunning notecard collection contains four distinctive Emily Dickinson passages on the nature and passage of time, inspiring both sender and receiver to savor life's precious moments. The box and enclosed envelopes are made with prints from the beloved poet's pressed-flower albums, where she collected over four hundred specimens.
