Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 387
"Navy" Sunset!"

The guest is gold and Crimson - [down]		
An Opal guest, and gray -
Of Ermine is his doublet `
His Capuchin gay '
He comes to town at nightfall -
He stops at every door -
Who looks for him at morning `
I pray him too   explore
The Lark's pure territory `
Or the Lapwing's shore!
		   Emilie `
