Emily Dickinson

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

It's like the light, --


It's like the light, --
A fashionless delight
It's like the bee, --
A dateless melody.

It's like the woods,
Private like breeze,
Phraseless, yet it stirs
The proudest trees.

It's like the morning, --
Best when it's done, --
The everlasting clocks
Chime noon.
