Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 366
Too cold is this
To warm with Sun -
Too stiff to bended 
To joint this Agate 
were a work - feat -
Outstaring Masonry -
 Defying - Appalling - Abashing
	  Beyond     machinery -

 How went the Agile 
Kernel out
Contusion of the Husk
Nor Rip, nor wrinkle 
But just as Asterisk.

H 366
