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

Part Five: The Single Hound

XXXV


AH, Teneriffe!
        Retreating Mountain!
Purples of Ages pause for you,
Sunset reviews her Sapphire Regiment,
Day drops you her red Adieu!        5
  
Still, clad in your mail of ices,
Thigh of granite and thew of steel—
Heedless, alike, of pomp or parting,
Ah, Teneriffe!
        I ’m kneeling still.        10
