An Ignorance A Sunset


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

Its Amber Revelation
Omnipotence' inspection
Of Our inferior face—

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

by Emily Dickinson

great poem warren, it's my favourite among all of yours, i guess staying in Malaysia doesn't affect your poetic capabilities aye? XD
Great poem. I never thought i'd ever say this, but I will say this poem reflects more poetic qualities than most of my poems. The consistency of the stanzas makes sure the poem stands out. Rhyming is great, I think the best part of the poem is in the word choices. Especially liked the words 'Nightingale, serenade, crystallized' and phrases like 'sapphire brighter than the Sun, wings of the fireflies, Shadow of splendor.' I also love the rest too, but there are too much to list here. Great poem, good job. All your poems deserve 10s. Chen
