A description of the experience

The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson

The inundation of the Spring
Enlarges every soul
It sweeps the tenement away
But leaves the water whole

In which the soul at first estranged
Seeks faintly for its shore
But acclimated – pines no more
For that peninsula

The source of the experience

Dickinson, Emily
