Poem of the Week: “The Savior Must Have Been a Docile Gentleman”

This week’s poem is by Emily Dickinson (who else would give a poem such a cumbersome title?).

“The Savior Must Have Been a Docile Gentleman”

by Emily Dickinson

The Savior must have been
A docile Gentleman—
To come so far so cold a Day
For little Fellowmen—

The Road to Bethlehem
Since He and I were Boys
Was leveled, but for that ‘twould be
A rugged Billion Miles—

  1. For having such a mouthful of a title, the poem is rather gentle and sweet. I love the sound of it! Emily Dickinson had such a way with words. It makes me sad that the world didn’t know it until after she was gone.
