Emily Dickinson
The Day undressed -- Herself --
printer friendly version
The Day undressed -- Herself --
Her Garter -- was of Gold --
Her Petticoat -- of Purple plain --
Her Dimities -- as old

Exactly -- as the World --
And yet the newest Star --
Enrolled upon the Hemisphere
Be wrinkled -- much as Her --

Too near to God -- to pray --
Too near to Heaven -- to fear --
The Lady of the Occident
Retired without a care --

Her Candle so expire
The flickering be seen
On Ball of Mast in Bosporus --
And Dome -- and Window Pane --

(#716)
