Emily Dickinson - Like her the Saints retire,

Like her the Saints retire,
In their Chapeaux of fire,
Martial as she!

Like her the Evenings steal
Purple and Cochineal
After the Day!

"Departed" -- both -- they say!
i.e. gathered away,
Not found,

Argues the Aster still --
Reasons the Daffodil
Profound!

Wow! Nice peom. I had to do an 8 page paper on Emily for my pschology class, because she had mental problems like bi polar disorder, agoraphobia, and schizptypy personality disorder. Who knew?
