An ignorance a sunset

An ignorance a sunset

My bedroom is high in the north wall of this great fortress and from the windows the sun in the morning and  evening reveals its special splendour reminding me of this wonderful piece of Dickinson


An ignorance a Sunset
Confer upon the Eye —
Of Territory — Color —
Circumference — Decay —

Its Amber Revelation
Exhilarate — Debase —
Omnipotence’ inspection
Of Our inferior face —

And when the solemn features
Confirm — in Victory —
We start — as if detected
In Immortality —

Emily Dickinson
