Emily Dickinson Poem


by Emily Dickinson

December 29, 2001

Delight becomes pictorial
When viewed through pain,--
More fair, because impossible
Than any gain.

The mountain at a given distance
In amber lies;
Approached, the amber flits a little,--
And that's the skies!

This comes from: Camp4
Live To Climb
