A Light Exists In Spring Poem by Emily Dickinson

A Light Exists In Spring

Rating: 3.2

A light exists in spring
Not present on the year
At any other period.
When March is scarcely here

A color stands abroad
On solitary hills
That science cannot overtake,
But human naturefeels.

It waits upon the lawn;
It shows the furthest tree
Upon the furthest slope we know;
It almost speaks to me.

Then, as horizons step,
Or noons report away,
Without the formula of sound,
It passes, and we stay:

A quality of loss
Affecting our content,
As trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a sacrament.

What a lucid expression of Spring... I guess Emily Dickinson mixed nature with faith so that all Creatures were alive in her pen.

The poem explores the limits of human perception, the conflict between scientific explanation and intuition, and the frustrating gap between moments of intense spirituality and humdrum everyday life.

A fascinating landscape or a series of those lovely portrayals. It is the greed of man that takes away the sheen out the nature's bounties, Thanks.
