Emily Dickinson - Brother of Ingots -- Ah Peru --

Brother of Ingots -- Ah Peru --
Empty the Hearts that purchased you --


Sister of Ophir --
Ah, Peru --
Subtle the Sum
That purchase you --


Brother of Ophir
Bright Adieu,
Honor, the shortest route
To you.

In the Bible, Ophir is a land from which comes gold and other precious things. King Solomon's treasures came at least in part from Ophir. See 1 Kings 9:28 and 1 Kings 10:11.

The mining of precious metals has long been associated with Peru, as has the exploitation of the land and people by outside mining interests.
