The Admirations — and Contempts — of time — by Emily Dickinson
906

The Admirations — and Contempts — of time —
Show justest — through an Open Tomb —
The Dying — as it were a Height
Reorganizes Estimate
And what We saw not
We distinguish clear —
And mostly — see not
What We saw before —

'Tis Compound Vision —
Light — enabling Light —
The Finite — furnished
With the Infinite —
Convex — and Concave Witness —
Back — toward Time —
And forward —
Toward the God of Him —
