Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

A Route of Evanescence


A Route of Evanescence
With a revolving Wheel--
A Resonance of Emerald--
A Rush of Cochineal--
And every Blossom on the Bush
Adjusts its tumbled Head--
The mail from Tunis, probably,
An easy Morning's Ride--

Look at her, standing there by her upstairs window, in white, in her ever-present state of reverie, reveling in the blossoms' obeisance to the hummingbird, when the real world blathers in in the sounds of the mail horse galumphing up the road..... Sheer poetry! (Report) Reply

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
