Emily Dickinson

The Love A Life Can Show Below

poem 673

The Love a Life can show Below Is but a filament, I know, Of that diviner thing That faints upon the face of Noon And smites the Tinder in the Sun And hinders Gabriel’s Wing ‘Tis this in Music hints and sways And far abroad on Summer days Distils uncertain pain ‘Tis this enamors in the East And tints the Transit in the West With harrowing Iodine ‘Tis this invites appalls endows ; Flits glimmers proves di ssolves Returns suggests co nvicts enchants Then flings in Paradise
