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.

Emily Dickinson is one of Several female poets that inspired me. I took a
poetry class in high school and literally got hooked on writting. I like
quoting this one from her.
