Go back to This that would greet--an hour ago--

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
This that would greet--an hour ago--

This that would greet -- an hour ago --
Is quaintest Distance -- now --
Had it a Guest from Paradise --
Nor glow, would it, nor bow --

Had it a notice from the Noon
Nor beam would it nor warm --
Match me the Silver Reticence --
Match me the Solid Calm --

(#778)
