Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 240a
Bloom upon the  
Mountain - stated - 
Blameless of a Name - 
Efflorescence of  
a Sunset - 
Reproduced - the Same - 

Seed, had I, my  
Purple Sowing 
Should endow the  
Day - 
Not a Tropic of  
a Twilight - 

H 240b

Show itself away - 

Who for tilling -  
to the Mountain 
Come, and dis- 
appear - 
Whose be Her  
Renown, or fading, 
Witness, is not  
here - 

While I state -  

H 240c

the Solemn Petals - 
Far as North - and  
Far as South  
and West - expan- 
ding - 
Culminate - in Rest - 

And the Mountain  
to the Evening 
Fit His Countenance - 
Indicating, by no Muscle - 
The Experience.
