The Guest Is Gold And Crimson - Poem by Alicia Mendenhall

The Guest is gold and crimson -
An Opal guest and gray -
Of Ermine is his doublet -
His Capuchin gay -

He reaches town at nightfall -
He stops at every door -
Who looks for him at morning
I pray him too - explore
The Lark's pure territory -
Or the Lapwing's shore!

Emily Dickinson -
