A Light exists in Spring – Emily Dickinson

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period —
When March is scarcely here


A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.


It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.


Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay —


A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

  1. Mie îmi place foarte mult Gabriela Marie Milton!
    Scrie într-un fel anume:
    “didn’t you know
    that when you said I love you
    you stepped on roads of fables and folk tales?
    you glued your heart onto a purple sunset
    smells of lilac and of roses, impregnated strolls,
    it wasn’t me
    it was you who stole his soul”
