Emily Dickinson
If the foolish, call them

If the foolish, call them "flowers" --
Need the wiser, tell?
If the Savants "Classify" them
It is just as well!

Those who read the "Revelations"
Must not criticize
Those who read the same Edition --
With beclouded Eyes!

Could we stand with that Old "Moses" --
"Canaan" denied --
Scan like him, the stately landscape
On the other side --

Doubtless, we should deem superfluous
Many Sciences,
Not pursued by learned Angels
In scholastic skies!

Low amid that glad Belles lettres
Grant that we may stand,
Stars, amid profound Galaxies --
At that grand "Right hand"!
