A Cloud Withdrew From The Sky - Poem by Emily Dickinson

895

A Cloud withdrew from the Sky
Superior Glory be
But that Cloud and its Auxiliaries
Are forever lost to me

Had I but further scanned
Had I secured the Glow
In an Hermetic Memory
It had availed me now.

Never to pass the Angel
With a glance and a Bow
Till I am firm in Heaven
Is my intention now.

    It is cool how she is playing science and mystery off each other in the same poem. She sees a cloud in the sky- something we all do- and the next thing I know she is talking auxiliaries and how she regrets not sealing all these things she sees in an Hermetic Memory”. Have to love the poetry of an adventurous mind. (Report) Reply

    My first time reading this one by Emily as best I can remember. But what strikes me as characteristic of her are her unexpected or original use of words as in Auxiliaries and Hermetic and how she packs so much into so few lines. There’s a lot of similarity to this poem of hers and my Heart Song which begins, The sun is lacking. -GK (Report) Reply

    Yes there are glories which are superior to that of a cloud,
    but even a cloud (deemed to be an angel) could have been recalled by her, had she fixed it firmer in her Hermetic memory, now she resolves never to pass such clouds with merely a glance and a bow until she is firmly in heaven herself..........outstanding piece.......thanks for sharing

Sky Poems

  1. The Sun Has Burst The Sky

    The sun has burst the sky Because I love you And the river its banks. The sea laps the great rocks Because I love you And takes no heed of the moon dragging it away And saying coldly 'Constancy is not for you'. The blackbird fills the air Because I love you With spring and lawns and shadows falling on lawns. The people walk in the street and laugh I love you And far down the river ships sound their hooters Crazy with joy because I love you.

  2. There Is Another Sky

    There is another sky, Ever serene and fair, And there is another sunshine, Though it be darkness there; Never mind faded forests, Austin, Never mind silent fields— Here is a little forest, Whose leaf is ever green; Here is a brighter garden, Where not a frost has been; In its unfading flowers I hear the bright bee hum: Prithee, my brother, Into my garden come!

  3. A Boat Beneath A Sunny Sky

    A BOAT beneath a sunny sky, Lingering onward dreamily In an evening of July -- Children three that nestle near, Eager eye and willing ear, Pleased a simple tale to hear -- Long has paled that sunny sky: Echoes fade and memories die: Autumn frosts have slain July. Still she haunts me, phantomwise, Alice moving under skies Never seen by waking eyes. Children yet, the tale to hear, Eager eye and willing ear, Lovingly shall nestle near. In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: Ever drifting down the stream -- Lingering in the golden dream -- Life, what is it but a dream? THE END

  4. A Different Sky Is Waiting

    We’ve been in the rain so long That our eyes are sore and red; When joy is missing, We gaze down too long at our feet As we slowly walk through the city, But there must be a different sky waiting Offering love and inspiration. Beneath these yellow factory skies, Even the street lights look sadly dim, Like our spiritual light within Blurred by an affectionless life. Things began to change When I met you in a small bar Not far from the school where you teach; I saw Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass Easing out of your purse, I knew we had to talk. As we spoke over drinks In the early evening, I felt loneliness begin to lift Like dark persistent clouds Being pushed aside by sunlight, As if Walt Whitman were sending us Prayers mingled with lilacs. Indeed, there is a different sky waiting, Azure blue and dazzling, Inviting flowers to bloom On romantic avenues When two people finally find each other. In my mind I have already seen You smile in a summer dress Beneath a different sky welcoming our love.
