A House Upon The Height

Rating: 3.2

A House upon the Height—
That Wagon never reached—
No Dead, were ever carried down—
No Peddler's Cart—approached—

Whose Chimney never smoked—
Whose Windows—Night and Morn—
Caught Sunrise first—and Sunset—last—
Then—held an Empty Pane—

the heights - too high - can't reach the head, the hands over the emptiness it stands like the pole line - unshaped dead all beneath the roots of it running - driving - tuning with the stormy winds and then losing - and then disappearing the heights - too high; none can reach but the mind - the imaginative mind - the confident faith - all in one day will be Faded glory

This is one of Dickinson's death poems where she told about the stately palace none could be seen coming in and coming out when save the Almighty.......one of the best of all time......10+++

Whose Chimney never smoked— Whose Windows—Night and Morn— Caught Sunrise first—and Sunset—last— Then—held an Empty Pane— Eery atmosphere.

As usual a very profound cameo of perfection.

this is certainly an empty house high up on the hill, because there is no smoke from the chimney. Typically a poem by Emily Dickinson with that dash behind each end of a line. Veel Eenvoud in woordstijl, korte zinnen en kort gedicht, Emily Dickinson ten voeten uit!
