Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B190a
 Dear Sue '
	   It  is
sweet  you
are  better .
I  am  greedy
to  see  you.
Your  note  was
like  the  Wind.
The  Bible
chooses that
you  know  to
define  the
Spirit  .

H B190b

[page break, on verso:]

A  Wind  that 
rose  though 
not  a  Leaf
In  any  Forest 
But  with  
itself  did  cold 
Beyond  the  
realm  of  Bird.

A  Wind  
that  woke 
a lone  Delight
Like  Separation's 
Swell  -
