Emily Dickinson - They might not need me -- yet they might --

They might not need me -- yet they might --
I'll let my Heart be just in sight --
A smile so small as mine might be
Precisely their necessity --

I love this poem, but isn't it 'my head' not 'my heart'?

I think this is a marvellous poem. Encourages us to engage our hearts in whatever we do and to realize that we have value when we do this regardless of the size of our contributions. There is great virtue in the small things, as E.D. so aptly shows us in her life and in her "small" poems.
