letters from dickinson to sarah tuckerman
Would it be prudent to subject an apparitional interview to a grosser test? the Bible protentously says "that which is Spirit is Spirit."
Go not too near a House of Rose
E. Dickinson -
The depredation of a Breeze
Or inundation of a Dew
Alarm it's walls away -
Nor try to tie the Butterfly,
Nor climb the Bars of Ecstasy,
In insecurity to lie
Is Joy's insuring quality.
