Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was a reclusive American poet. Unrecognized in her own time, Dickinson is known posthumously for her unusual use of form and syntax.
Because I could not stop for Death –
He kindly stopped for me –
The Carriage held but just Ourselves –
We slowly drove – He knew no haste
And I had put away
My labor and my leisure too,
For His Civility –
We passed the School, where Children strove
At Recess – in the Ring –
We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain –
We passed the Setting Sun –
Or rather – He passed Us –
The Dews drew quivering and Chill –
For only Gossamer, my Gown –
My Tippet – only Tulle –
We paused before a House that seemed
A Swelling of the Ground –
The Roof was scarcely visible –
The Cornice – in the Ground –
Since then – 'tis Centuries – and yet
Feels shorter than the Day
I first surmised the Horses' Heads
Were toward Eternity –
recipe from bakerette.com
- 1 package (8 oz.) Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet (Pillsbury)
- 1 container (10 oz.) hummus (try roasted red pepper hummus)
- 1 cucumber, sliced and quartered
- 11 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Roll out the seamless dough sheet on a lightly floured surface. Using a 2″ round cookie cutter, cut out 20-21 circles of dough.
- Line each ungreased mini-muffin cups pan with a circle of dough. Press the dough against the sides and bottoms of the cups.
- Using a fork, prick dough on the bottom and sides of each cup.
- Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and remove from oven. The crescents will probably be puffy, so while the dough is still hot, press a spoon against the sides of the crescents to flatten them into a mini bowl.
- Once cooled, remove cups from the tins and add a heaping teaspoon of hummus into each cup and top with cucumber slices and a tomato half. Sprinkle with salt.
