Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B63
 Susan -  I  would 
have  come   out 
of  Eden  to  open 
the  Door  for  you 
if   I  had  known 
you  were  there.
You  must  knock 
with  a  Trumpet 
as  Gabriel  does, 
whose  Hands  are 
small  as  yours -
I  knew  he  knocked 
and   went  away -
I  did'nt  dream 
that  you  did -


H B63
