A Light Exists in Spring

‘A Light Exists in Spring’ is a beautiful poem about the coming of Spring. It is not one of Emily Dickinson’s best-known poems. The poem is both a nature poem and a spiritual one.

Emily Dickinson writes of the distinctive uniqueness of the colours and light of Springtime and how they affect the mind, body and spirit.

The poem highlights the dichotomy that exists twixt the natural, spiritual and scientific world and that the latter is unable to supersede men and women’s inbuilt emotional and spiritual attachment to the natural world.
