A Visitor in Marl –

A Visitor in Marl --A Visitor in Marl –
Who influences Flowers –
Till they are orderly as Busts –
And Elegant — as Glass –

Who visits in the Night –
And just before the Sun –
Concludes his glistening interview –
Caresses — and is gone –

But whom his fingers touched –
And where his feet have run –
And whatsoever Mouth be kissed –
Is as it had not been –

I saw no Way — The Heavens were stitched –

I saw no Way -- The Heavens were stitched --I saw no Way — The Heavens were stitched –
I felt the Columns close –
The Earth reversed her Hemispheres –
I touched the Universe –

And back it slid — and I alone –
A Speck upon a Ball –
Went out upon Circumference –
Beyond the Dip of Bell –

The Sun — just touched the Morning –

The Sun -- just touched the Morning --The Sun — just touched the Morning –
The Morning — Happy thing –
Supposed that He had come to dwell –
And Life would all be Spring!

She felt herself supremer –
A Raised — Ethereal Thing!
Henceforth — for Her — What Holiday!
Meanwhile — Her wheeling King –
Trailed — slow — along the Orchards –
His haughty — spangled Hems –
Leaving a new necessity!
The want of Diadems!

The Morning — fluttered — staggered –
Felt feebly — for Her Crown –
Her unanointed forehead –
Henceforth — Her only One!
