Go back to Ah, Teneriffe!

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
Ah, Teneriffe!

Ah, Teneriffe!
Retreating Mountain!
Purples of Ages -- pause for you --
Sunset -- reviews her Sapphire Regiment --
Day -- drops you her Red Adieu!

Still -- Clad in your Mail of ices --
Thigh of Granite -- and thew -- of Steel --
Heedless -- alike -- of pomp -- or parting

Ah, Teneriffe!
I'm kneeling -- still --

(#666)
