In this poem moment, Emily Dickinson reacts to the passionate patriotism that marked the beginning of the Civil War in her poem, "Unto like Story--Trouble has enticed me--". I ask what we can do to act on patriotic feelings.
Dare you see a Soul at the White Heat?
The Gentian weaves her fringes--
Death sets a Thing significant
The morns are meeker than they were
After Great pain a formal feeling comes
The face I cary with me last--
A Bird came down the Walk—
Before I got my eye put out
I cannot dance upon my Toes—
Some keep the Sabbath going to Church
