Emily Dickinson - That is solemn we have ended

That is solemn we have ended
Be it but a Play
Or a Glee among the Garret
Or a Holiday

Or a leaving Home, or later,
Parting with a World
We have understood for better
Still to be explained.

emily has eternal qualities.....david inkey

----

emily’s silence…




Emily said to me: Parting is all we know of Heaven,
And of Hell, all we need to know…

andrew astounded all awe…
benjamin blessed the bounty…
carl cried our concern…

david delighted in description, deciphering joy,
joy in a good job well done… playing along….


edward only wondered…
franklin… franklin felt, he felt friendship,
george jestered in all gentleness…

lily lives…
mary marveled…
naomi needed…
ophelia opts…
penelope pines…

ruth requests…
robert robed his questions in a coat of many colors…
samuel suggested surprises would be his best sermon…

thomas doubted, totally:


david inkey, date unknown, late 20th century
