They Come in Pairs....

Those Poetry in Motion posters, they do. Earlier today I posted the Whitman. Here is the other one New Yorkers will be reading for the next few months:

"Tell All the Truth..."

Tell all the Truth but tell it slant-
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise

As lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind-

--Emily Dickinson
