Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Two: Nature

XLIII


BLAZING in gold and quenching in purple,
Leaping like leopards to the sky,
Then at the feet of the old horizon
Laying her spotted face, to die;
  
Stooping as low as the kitchen window,        5
Touching the roof and tinting the barn,
Kissing her bonnet to the meadow,—
And the juggler of day is gone!
