about

three Emily Dickinson poems set to music written by jonathan nankof

lyrics

228

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 Otter’s Window
Touching the Roof and tinting the Barn
Kissing her Bonnet to the Meadow
And the Juggler of Day is gone

377

To lose one’s faith - surpass
The loss of an Estate -
Because Estates can be
Replenished - faith cannot -

Inherited with Life -
Belief - but once - can be -
Annihilate a single clause -
And Being’s - Beggary -

378

I saw no Way - The Heavens were stitched -
I felt the Columns close -
The Earth reversed her Hemispheres -
I touched the Universe -

And back it slid - and I alone -
A Speck upon a Ball -
Went out upon Circumference -
Beyond the Dip of Bell -
