Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

Delight Becomes Pictorial

Delight becomes pictorial
When viewed through pain,--
More fair, because impossible
That any gain.

The mountaln at a given distance
In amber lies;
Approached, the amber flits a little,--
And that's the skies!
