Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

It Is An Honorable Thought,

It is an honorable thought,
And makes one lift one's hat,
As one encountered gentlefolk
Upon a daily street,

That we've immortal place,
Though pyramids decay,
And kingdoms, like the orchard,
Flit russetly away.
