If the best they things were completely manifested, they would not be the
best things.

Vulgar or bawdy yes, but it's just like her to pose the second stanza --
which analogizes consummated desire to expulsion from Eden, and then posits
God is Godly only by virtue of our inability to consummate a proximity to
The "mote of pearl" is what you get for successfully "persuading"
"paradise" -- and that's about as sexy an image as I know in ED.

I love this poem. It's a complete hoot. Who knew Emily Dickinson could be
be vulgar? You can just about hear two women gossiping over the fence.
"Did you hear about .... ?" "Oh really...?" "Well! I always said she had
a loose girdle..."

I'm working on an illustration/cartoon for this. Email me if you'd like to
see it.
