Emily Dickinson - The spry Arms of the Wind

The spry Arms of the Wind
If I could crawl between
I have an errand imminent
To an adjoining Zone --

I should not care to stop
My Process is not long
The Wind could wait without the Gate
Or stroll the Town among.

To ascertain the House
And is the soul at Home
And hold the Wick of mine to it
To light, and then return --

Thanks to your website and the popup ad that crossed the page at first obscuring the text: To McDonalds, for their french fries -- in Emily's case, I presume, for something more than just a Happy Meal.

William Dill from United States
