Treasure Island

Emily Dickinson

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

This that would greet—an hour ago


778

This that would greet—an hour ago—
Is quaintest Distance—now—

Nor glow, would it, nor bow—

Nor beam would it nor warm—
Match me the Silver Reticence—
Match me the Solid Calm—
