Happy Birthday Emily Bronte


"I cannot express it: but surely you and everybody have a notion that there is, or should be, an existence of yours beyond you. "
Emily Bronte

Happy Birthday, you troubled beauty.
Only 30 years of walking the earth were bestowed upon you.
But you look really good for 192.

Forever admiring your wild spirit and stubborn independence,

Happy Birthday dear heart,
your name
was given to me when I was 2 weeks old -
and though it was about 17 years later
I found you for myself,
I felt proud to carry
a whisper of you.
And then,
I will forever remember
taking my first steps
on the Yorkshire moors,
and feeling you close
wild, melancholy, beautiful.
