Emily Dickinson

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

That first Day, when you praised Me, Sweet


659

And said that I was strong—
And could be mighty, if I liked—

Between Diverging Golds—
The Minor One—that gleamed behind—
And Vaster—of the World's.

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
