Emily Dickinson - Ah, Teneriffe!

Ah, Teneriffe!
Retreating Mountain!
Purples of Ages -- pause for you --
Sunset -- reviews her Sapphire Regiment --
Day -- drops you her Red Adieu!

Still -- Clad in your Mail of ices --
Thigh of Granite -- and thew -- of Steel --
Heedless -- alike -- of pomp -- or parting

Ah, Teneriffe!
I'm kneeling -- still --

Slant Rhyme--not just
Lazy--but Hark! Not only
random--Capitalization
It does'nt even--Pwn--

I feel that if I speak this poem aloud, the catastrophic consequence would surely lead to the end of mankind as we know it. p.s. slant rhyme is just plain LAZY!!
