Seven poems, must-reads for me… no particular order … #1: Dickinson, #602

Seven poems, must-reads for me… always… no particular order

#1

Emily Dickinson
#601

A still – Volcano – Life –
That flickered in the night –
When it was dark enough to do
Without erasing sight –

A quiet – Earthquake Style –
Too subtle to suspect
By natures this side Naples –
The North cannot detect

The Solemn – Torrid – Symbol –
The lips that never lie –
Whose hissing Corals part – and shut –
And Cities – ooze away –
