Emily Dickinson, 770

 
In flinke Slok fan Harren Geast
Ferfrist - en dan kin Mynt
Woestinen troch of Wyldernis
As hold er Bottele Wyn -

Mei Fearkrêft - Of as Ien dy’t wit
Hoe’t in Kamiel - him rist -
Sterk is de prikel fan in Geast
As dy Hermetysk is -

 

Strong Draughts of Their Refreshing Minds
To drink - enables Mine
Through Desert or the Wilderness
As bore it Sealed Wine -

To go elastic - Or as One
The Camel’s trait - attained -
How powerful the stimulus
Of an Hermetic Mind -

 

F770 (J711). Ofbylding: Houghton Library, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA.
