A description of the experience

Emily Dickinson – from the Poems of Emily Dickinson

I have a king, who does not speak

So - wondering - thro’ the hours meek
I trudge the day away
Half glad when it is night and sleep
If haply, thro’ a dream to peep
In parlours shut by day
 
And if I do – when morning comes
It is as if a hundred drums
Did round my pillow roll
And shouts fill all my childish sky
And bells keep saying ‘victory’
From steeples in my soul

The source of the experience

Dickinson, Emily
