Emily Dickinson

Ah, Moon and Star!

poem 240

Ah, Moon and Star! You are very far But were no one Farther than you Do you think I’d stop For a Firmament Or a Cubit or so? I could borrow a Bonnet Of the Lark And a Chamois’ Silver Boot And a stirrup of an Antelope And be with you Tonight! But, Moon, and Star, Though you’re very far There is one farther than you He is more than a firmament from Me So I can never go!
