As far from pity, as complaint — by Emily Dickinson
496

As far from pity, as complaint —
As cool to speech — as stone —
As numb to Revelation
As if my Trade were Bone —

As far from time — as History —
As near yourself — Today —
As Children, to the Rainbow's scarf —
Or Sunset's Yellow play

To eyelids in the Sepulchre —
How dumb the Dancer lies —
While Color's Revelations break —
And blaze — the Butterflies!
