Will There Really Be A "Morning"?

101

Will there really be a "Morning"?
Is there such a thing as "Day"?
Could I see it from the mountains
If I were as tall as they?

Has it feet like Water lilies?
Has it feathers like a Bird?
Is it brought from famous countries
Of which I have never heard?

Oh some Scholar! Oh some Sailor!
Oh some Wise Men from the skies!
Please to tell a little Pilgrim
Where the place called "Morning" lies!

by Emily Dickinson

The heart of this woman beats in every word she pens. That last stanza has to be the most well-written closure to a poem ever.
A great poem inked by an equally great poetess. Thanks for sharing it here.
Very 'avant guard' and daring for the times! Wonderfully written, romantically chimed.
