No Brigadier throughout the Year

No Brigadier throughout the Year

No Brigadier throughout the Year
So civic as the Jay
A Neighbor and a Warrior too
With shrill felicity
Pursuing Winds that censure us
A February Day,
The Brother of the Universe
Was never blown away
The Snow and he are intimate
I’ve often seem them play
When Heaven looked upon us all
With such severity
I felt apology were due
To an insulted sky
Whose pompous frown was Nutriment
To their Temerity
The Pillow of this daring Head
Is pungent Evergreens
His Larder terse and Militant
Unknown refreshing things
His Character a Tonic
His future a Dispute
Unfair an Immortality
That leaves this Neighbor out



Poem No Brigadier throughout the Year - Emily Dickinson
