Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

Lightly Stepped A Yellow Star

Lightly stepped a yellow star
To its lofty place -
Loosed the Moon her silver hat
From her lustral Face -
All of Evening softly lit
As an Astral Hall -
Father, I observed to Heaven,
You are punctual.
