A Cloud Withdrew From The Sky

#

 A Cloud withdrew from the Sky

Superior Glory be

But that Cloud and its Auxiliaries

Are forever lost to me

 

Had I but further scanned

Had I secured the Glow

In an Hermetic Memory

It had availed me now,

 

Never to pass the Angel

With a glance and a Bow

Till I am firm in Heaven

Is my intention now.

 

 

Emily Dickinson
