Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Emily Dickinson: A Light Exists in Spring

A Light exists in Spring

Not present on the Year

At any other period –

When March is scarcely here

.

A Color stands abroad

On Solitary Fields

That Science cannot overtake

But Human Nature feels.

.

It waits upon the Lawn,

It shows the furthest Tree

Upon the furthest Slope you know

It almost speaks to you.

.

Then as Horizons step

Or Noons report away

Without the Formula of sound

It passes and we stay –

.

A quality of loss

Affecting our Content

As Trade had suddenly encroached

Upon a Sacrament.
