I am always encouraged and rejuvenated after reading this poem.  To me it extols creative expression in poetry, music, and the visual arts. It communicates a refreshing attitude toward life.
I dwell in Possibility --
A fairer House than Prose --
More numerous of Windows --
Superior -- for Doors --

Of Chambers as the Cedars --
Impregnable of Eye --
And for an Everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the sky --

Of Visitors -- the fairest --
For Occupation -- This --
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To Gather Paradise --
...Emily Dickinson
