Dickinson Poem





I have had this poem on my mind lately. Do you guys know it? One of her best, travels well, and deceptively simple. Also Easterish.







Part Four: Time and Eternity

LXIII

AMPLE make this bed.
Make this bed with awe;
In it wait till judgment break
Excellent and fair.
Be its mattress straight,        5
Be its pillow round;
Let no sunrise’ yellow noise
Interrupt this ground.
