Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 127a
Blazing in Gold - and 
Quenching - in Purple! 
Leaping - like Leopards - in 
the sky - 
Then - at the feet of the 
old Horizon - 
Laying it's spotted face - to die! 

Stooping as low as the 
kitchen window - 
Touching the Roof - 
And tinting the Barn - 
Kissing it's Bonnet to 
the Meadow - 
And the Juggler of 
Day - is gone! 


H 127a
