In Memoriam, J.f.k.

May 2024
1min read

In your December issue you enclosed a tribute to the late President Kennedy—a poem of Emily Dickinson’s written in 1865. … Both my husband and myself feel that the eight-line poem expressed better how most of us felt than all the millions of words that were written about Mr. Kennedy’s death.

We hope you enjoy our work.
