Video Details for I Had No Time To Hate by Emily Dickinson
Here's a virtual movie of the great Emily Dickinson reading her much loved poem I had no time to Hate. This poem draws it inspiration from the Biblical message of "Love thy Enemy." Surely an eternal wisdom that is perhaps the highest of ideals regardless of religious belief or lack of that few if any of us manage to put into practice.
I Had No Time To Hate
by Emily Dickinson
I had no time to hate, because
The grave would hinder me,
And life was not so ample I
Could finish enmity.
Nor had I time to love, but since
Some industry must be,
The little toil of love, I thought,
Was large enough for me.
