Dickinson, Emily - A moth the hue of this Haunts candles in Brazil

Identifier

000105

Type of spiritual experience

Background

Like all Emily's poems full of symbols

A description of the experience

A moth the hue of this
Haunts candles in Brazil
Nature’s experience would make
Our reddest second pale
Nature is fond, I sometimes think
Of trinkets, as a girl

The source of the experience

Dickinson, Emily
