Emily Dickinson - Let me not mar that perfect Dream

Let me not mar that perfect Dream
By an Auroral stain
But so adjust my daily Night
That it will come again.

Not when we know, the Power accosts --
The Garment of Surprise
Was all our timid Mother wore
At Home -- in Paradise.

I think that this poem has so much meaning despite the fact that its really short. Its basically talking about a dream that you never want to end because that moment is so valuable and precious and those moments dont happen very often in dreams. Something so perfect can end with a blink of an eye, literally.
