(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

Praise it - 'tis dead -

Praise it - 'tis dead -
It cannot glow -
Warm this inclement Ear
With the encomium it earned
Since it was gathered here -
Invest this alabaster Zest
In the Delights of Dust -
Remitted - since it flitted it
In recusance august.

by Emily Dickinson
