Emily Dickinson: Tell All The Truth

If you cannot see the audio controls, listen/download the audio file here

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 (1830-1886)
