letters from dickinson to bowles

To Mr. Samuel Bowles
From ED

early 1862

Title divine - is mine!
The Wife - without the Sign!
Acute Degree - conferred on me -
Empress of Cavlary!
Royal - all but the Crown!
Betrothed - without the swoon
God sends us Women -
When you - hold - Garnet to Garnet -
Gold - to Gold -
Born - Bridalled - Shrouded -
In a Day -
"My Husband" - women say -
Stroking the Melody -
Is this - the way?

Here's - what I had to "tell you" -
You will tell no other? Honor - is it's
own pawn -
