Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

It sounded as if the Streets were running

It sounded as if the Streets were running
And then - the Streets stood still -
Eclipse - was all we could see at the Window
And Awe - was all we could feel.

By and by - the boldest stole out of his Covert
To see if Time was there -
Nature was in an Opal Apron,
Mixing fresher Air.
