Emily Dickinson - Forbidden Fruit a flavor has

Forbidden Fruit a flavor has
That lawful Orchards mocks --
How luscious lies within the Pod
The Pea that Duty locks --

When a man kills a man:
When a man kills a man
The stars look away and the sun
Withholds its rays and denies
The warmth of life and supplies
The violet curse and puts the stain
On blackest souls and tells the rain
Donít weep on them and keep your tears
Of life since life down there appears
Valueless and your drops will dry up
Before the pod opens up
And unlocks the fruit and delivers
The earthly unworthy sinners
So the rain and stars and the sun
Look far away not to man.
