Emily D!

Love - is anterior to Life -
Posterior - to Death -
Initial of Creation, and  
The Exponent of Earth -

Emily Dickinson

******************************************

Of all the Souls that stand create -
I have elected - One -
When Sense from Spirit - files away -
And Subterfuge - is done -

When that which is - and that which was -
Apart -intrinsic - stand -
And this brief Drama in the flesh -
Is shifted - like a Sand -

When Figures show their royal Front -
And Mists - are carved away,          
Behold the Atom - I preferred -

To all the lists of Clay!

Emily Dickinson

********************************************

Ample make this Bed -
Make this Bed with Awe -
In it wait till Judgment break   
Excellent and Fair.   
 
Be its Mattress straight -           5
Be its Pillow round -
Let no Sunrise’ yellow noise   
Interrupt this Ground -

Emily Dickinson
