Poetry Archive 2

Another of my own pieces.

On Reading Emily

Death is a Motion in the mind
A stillness in the Nerve --
A jest -- unchaperoned by smile --
A feast that scarce -- will serve

That so replete with matter is --
One may miss the Gist
A sentence -- understood til given
Hyphenated -- twist
