The Love a Life can show Below by Emily Dickinson
673

The Love a Life can show Below
Is but a filament, I know,
Of that diviner thing
That faints upon the face of Noon —
And smites the Tinder in the Sun —
And hinders Gabriel's Wing —

'Tis this — in Music — hints and sways —
And far abroad on Summer days —
Distils uncertain pain —
'Tis this enamors in the East —
And tints the Transit in the West
With harrowing Iodine —

'Tis this — invites — appalls — endows —
Flits — glimmers — proves — dissolves —
Returns — suggests — convicts — enchants —
Then — flings in Paradise —
