Inconceivably solemn!

by Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson


Inconceivably solemn!
Things go gay
Pierce-by the very Press
Of Imagery-

Their far Parades-order on the eye
With a mute Pomp-
A pleading Pageantry-

Flags, are a brave sight-
But no true Eye
Ever went by One-

Music's triumphant-
But the fine Ear
Winces with delight
Are Drums too near-
