The Guest is gold and crimson —
An Opal guest and gray —
Of Ermine is his doublet —
His Capuchin gay —
He reaches town at nightfall —
He stops at every door —
Who looks for him at morning
I pray him too — explore
The Lark’s pure territory —
Or the Lapwing’s shore!
i really like Emily Dickinson’s work, i agree with alex i think she was a very intelligent person, and put alot of the thought and consideration into her into the countenance of her work. very nice poem.
I think Emily Dickonson was a very intelligent person and she also gave a lot of effort into her poems.
I think what she means by the guets is gold and grimson is that Gold is the king of everything and that he works in mysterious ways.
I think that the quest is about our lord and savior. Emily Dickenson was a brilliant poet. She knew exactly what she wanted to write about and she did it very beautifly!!!
I’d say the guest is God (or more specifically Jesus) as she talks about people “looking for him”.
The guest is Santa Claus.
I think Emily Dickonson was a very intelligent person and she also gave a lot of effort into her poems. She inspires me in ways that I never thought anyone would inspire me! I hope to someday write poems as well as she did.
