Emily Dickinson - The Moon is distant from the Sea

The Moon is distant from the Sea --
And yet, with Amber Hands --
She leads Him -- docile as a Boy --
Along appointed Sands --

He never misses a Degree --
Obedient to Her Eye
He comes just so far -- toward the Town --
Just so far -- goes away --

Oh, Signor, Thine, the Amber Hand --
And mine -- the distant Sea --
Obedient to the least command
Thine eye impose on me --

I really love this poem, I like it sooo much, when she writes about simple things, that after you have looked closer don't seem that simple at all.
She was a genius, wasn't she?
