A description of the experience

The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson – Emily Dickinson

I like to see it lap the miles
And lick the valleys up
And stop to feed itself in tanks
And then prodigious step

Around a pile of mountains
And supercilious peer
In shanties by the sides of roads
And then a quarry pare

To fit its ribs
And crawl between
Complaining all the while
In horrid hooting stanza
Then chase itself down hill

And neigh like Boanerges
Then punctual as a star
Stop docile and omnipotent
At its own stable door

The source of the experience

Dickinson, Emily
