Emily Dickinson - I never saw a Moor --

I never saw a Moor --
I never saw the Sea --
Yet know I how the Heather looks
And what a Billow be.

I never spoke with God
Nor visited in Heaven --
Yet certain am I of the spot
As if the Chart were given --

If it helps:

A Billow is a large wave

Checks are colored seat checks that indicated the destinations of passengers on a train after their tickets have been collected. (Nowadays, we use planes so it is understandable that most people will not know this definition).

Personally, i think this poem is rather brilliant. It tells us that although we have not seen something, it is there and although we have not seen it through experience, we can depict what it is like within our mind.
