letters from dickinson to bowles

To Samuel Bowles
From ED

about 1863

The Zeroes - taught us - Phosphorous -
We learned to like the Fire
By playing Glaciers - when a Boy -
And Tinder - guessed - by power
Of Opposite - to balance Odd -
If White - a Red - must be!
Paralysis - our Primer - dumb -
Unto Vitality!

I could'nt let Austin's note go - without a word -
