A Charm Invests A Face

Rating: 2.9
421

A Charm invests a face
Imperfectly beheld—
The Lady dare not lift her Veil
For fear it be dispelled—

But peers beyond her mesh—
And wishes—and denies—
Lest Interview—annul a want
That Image—satisfies—
Emily Dickinson

A typical ED Poem, oft a brevity. All with Dashes inbetween, but I must admit This Is a Classic Poem Of The Day. CONGRATULATIONS for the family of the late great classic poetess. True great, and Classic through and through. That´s EMILY DICKINSON in full person. May she rest in peace.
