A daily poem #228 – July 14, 2010

A poem
by Emily Dickinson

Heaven Has Different Signs To Me

Heaven Has Different Signs To Me

“Heaven” has different Signs to me
Sometimes, I think that Noon
Is but a symbol of the Place
And when again, at Dawn,

A mighty look runs round the World
And settles in the Hills
An Awe if it should be like that
Upon the Ignorance steals

The Orchard, when the Sun is on
The Triumph of the Birds
When they together Victory make
Some Carnivals of Clouds

The Rapture of a finished Day
Returning to the West
All these remind us of the place
That Men call “paradise”

Itself be fairer we suppose
But how Ourself, shall be
Adorned, for a Superior Grace
Not yet, our eyes can see
