Emily Dickinson - The Merchant of the Picturesque

The Merchant of the Picturesque
A Counter has and sales
But is within or negative
Precisely as the calls --
To Children he is small in price
And large in courtesy --
It suits him better than a check
Their artless currency --
Of Counterfeits he is so shy
Do one advance so near
As to behold his ample flight --
