Like Her The Saints Retire - Poem by Emily Dickinson

60

Like her the Saints retire,
In their Chapeaux of fire,
Martial as she!

Like her the Evenings steal
Purple and Cochineal
After the Day!

"Departed"—both&mdash ;they say!
i.e. gathered away,
Not found,

Argues the Aster still—
Reasons the Daffodil
Profound!
