Emily Dickinson - The Robin is a Gabriel

The Robin is a Gabriel
In humble circumstances --
His Dress denotes him socially,
Of Transport's Working Classes --
He has the punctuality
Of the New England Farmer --
The same oblique integrity,
A Vista vastly warmer --

A small but sturdy Residence
A self denying Household,
The Guests of Perspicacity
Are all that cross his Threshold --
As covert as a Fugitive,
Cajoling Consternation
By Ditties to the Enemy
And Sylvan Punctuation --

E D all the way!!!

Emily is superb. A one woman justification of the poetic art in one poem. Look away from the Tube and out the window for an affermation of the life force in motley.
