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—
Had it a Guest from Paradise—
Nor glow, would it, nor bow—

Had it a notice from the Noon
Nor beam would it nor warm—
Match me the Silver Reticence—
Match me the Solid Calm—
