Sunrise and sunset

A beautiful poem to enjoy
 

Sunrise and Sunset
I’ll tell you how the sun rose,
A ribbon at a time.
The steeples swam in amethyst,
The news like squirrels ran.
The hills untied their bonnets,
The bobolinks begun.
Then I said softly to myself,
That must have been the sun!”
But how he set, I know not.
There seemed a purple stile
Which little yellow boys and girls
Were climbing all the while
Till when they reached the other side,
A dominie in gray
Put gently up the evening bars,
And led the flock away.
 Emily Dickinson

  4. It really is a fault in my character that I have such a hard time with poetry. It takes an excellent post like this to make me slow down and read and feel the words.
