I Never Saw a Moor


"I Never Saw a Moor" is the fourth song of Richard Pearson Thomas' song cycle At Last, To Be Identified. The cycle sets the poetry of Emily Dickinson.

I Never Saw a Moor (poem 1052)
by Emily Dickinson

I never saw a moor,
I never saw the sea ;
Yet know I how the heather looks,
And what a wave must be.

I never spoke with God,
Nor visited in heaven ;
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if the chart were given.
