Emily Dickinson - To tell the Beauty would decrease

To tell the Beauty would decrease
To state the Spell demean --
There is a syllable-less Sea
Of which it is the sign --
My will endeavors for its word
And fails, but entertains
A Rapture as of Legacies --
Of introspective Mines --

Nobody but Ms Dickinson could write like that, although I have to say I've seen better from her.
