Dickinson, Emily: (A still — Volcano — Life —)

Portre of Dickinson, Emily

(A still — Volcano — Life —) (English)

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 —
   
   
(1862)
