Emily Dickinson

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

Sunset at Night—is natural


415

Sunset at Night—is natural—
But Sunset on the Dawn
Reverses Nature—Master—
So Midnight's—due—at Noon.

Eclipses be—predicted—
And Science bows them in—
But do one face us suddenly—
Jehovah's Watch—is wrong.
