Background

A description of the experience

Emily Dickinson – the Poems of Emily Dickinson

The Outer from the Inner
Derives its magnitude
‘Tis duke or dwarf according
As is the central mood

The fine unvarying axis
That regulates the wheel
Though spokes spin more conspicuous
And fling a dust the while

The inner paints the outer
The brush without the hand
Its picture publishes precise
As is the inner brand

On fine arterial canvas
A cheek perchance a brow
The star’s whole secret in the lake
Eyes were not meant to know

The source of the experience

Dickinson, Emily
