It sifts from Leaden Sieves
Emily Dickinson

[ Found in The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson ]

It sifts from Leaden Sieves –
It powders all the Wood –
It fills with Alabaster Wool
The Wrinkles of the Road.

It makes an Even Face
Of Mountain, and of Plain –
Unbroken Forehead from the East
Unto the East again.

It reaches to the Fence –
It wraps it rail by rail,
Till it is lost in Fleeces –
It deals Celestial Veil

On Stump and Stack and Stem –
A Summer’s empty Room,
Acres of Seams, where Harvests were,
Recordless, but for them.

It Ruffles Wrists of Posts
As Ankles of a queen –
Then stills its Artisans like Ghosts,
Denying they have been.
