Dickinson, Emily - Good morning midnight & When night is almost done



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

Emily Dickinson – the Poems of Emily Dickinson

Good morning midnight
I’m coming home
Day got tired of me
How could I of him?

Sunshine was a sweet place
I liked to stay
But morn didn’t want me now
So goodnight day

I can look can’t I
When the east is red?
The hills have a way then
That puts the heart abroad

You are not so fair midnight
I chose day
But please take a little girl
He turned away


When night is almost done
And sunrise grows so near
That we can touch the spaces
It’s time to smooth the hair

And get the dimples ready
And wonder we could care
For that old faded midnight
That frightened but an hour

The source of the experience
