Poem moment is a weekly glimpse at American poetry, currently focusing on the works of Emily Dickinson.
This week I share an Easter poem called, "A Lady red--amid the Hill," in which nature prepares for the resurrection.
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
Of all the Sounds despatched abroad,
Unto like Story--Trouble has enticed me--
A something in a summer's Day
