Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 350a
The Soul's Superior 
Occur to Her - alone -
When friend - and 
Earth's occasion
Have infinite withdrawn -

Or She - Herself - as-
To too remote a Hight
For lower Recognition
Than Her Omnipotent -

This Mortal Abolition
Is seldom - but as fair

H 350b

As Apparition - subject
To Autocratic Air -

Eternity's disclosure
To favorites - a few -
Of the Colossal 
Of Immortality
