Emily Dickinson

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

An ignorance a Sunset


552

An ignorance a Sunset
Confer upon the Eye—
Of Territory—Color—
Circumference&mda sh;Decay—

Its Amber Revelation
Exhilirate—Debase—
O mnipotence' inspection
Of Our inferior face—

And when the solemn features
Confirm—in Victory—
We start—as if detected
In Immortality—
