A second selection from Emily Dickinson’s newly published “scraps” and fragments:

Oh sumptuous

moment

slower go

that I

till

may gloat on

thee—

‘Twill never

be the same

that

Now I abundance

since

see—

Which was to

famish then or

now—

the difference

of Day

to

Ask him

Unto the Gallows

led– called

With morning

By

in the sky
