Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 284
Like her the Saints retire -
In a Chapeau of fire -
Martial - as she.
Like her - the evenings steal
Purple and Cochineal
Unto the Day.
"Departed both", they say -
i e gathered away!
  Not found!
Argues the Aster still -
Reasons the Daffodil
