Emily Dickinson

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

Sweet Mountains—Ye tell Me no lie


722

Sweet Mountains—Ye tell Me no lie—
Never deny Me—Never fly—
Those same unvarying Eyes
Turn on Me—when I fail—or feign,
Or take the Royal names in vain—
Their far—slow—Violet Gaze—

My Strong Madonnas—Cherish still—
The Wayward Nun—beneath the Hill—
Whose service—is to You—
Her latest Worship—When the Day
Fades from the Firmament away—
To lift Her Brows on You—

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
