Emily Dickinson - Ah, Necromancy Sweet!

Ah, Necromancy Sweet!
Ah, Wizard erudite!
Teach me the skill,

That I instil the pain
Surgeons assuage in vain,
Nor Herb of all the plain
Can Heal!

Dickinson was very, very angry with some one too the point she wanted to do anything, wizardy, Black Magic, Voodoo, witch craft, all with out any cure for the intended victem. She must have had so much pain herself she transformed it into severe anger!
