Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 341a
The Luxury to 
The Luxury 'twould 
To look at Thee 
a single time
An Epicure of Me
In whatsoever 
Presence makes
Till for a further 
I scarcely recollect 
to starve
H 341b

So first am I 
supplied -
The Luxury to 
The Luxury it was
To banquet on 
thy Countenance
A Sumptuousness 
On plainer Days, 
whose Table, far
As Certainty - can see -
Is laden with a 
single Crumb -
H 341c

The Consciousness - of Thee.
