poems from dickinson to perez d. cowan

"And with what body do they come?" -
Then they do come - Rejoice!
What Door - What Hour - Run - run - My Soul!
Illuminate the House!

"Body!" Then real - a Face and Eyes -
To know that it is them! -
Paul knew the Man that knew the News -
He passed through Bethlehem -
