Sweet safe Houses

Sweet safe Houses

Sweet safe Houses
Glad gay Houses
Sealed so stately tight
Lids of Steel on Lids of Marble
Locking Bare feet out

Brooks of Plush in Banks of Satin
Not so softly fall
As the laughter and the whisper
From their People Pearl

No Bald Death affront their Parlors
No Bold Sickness come
To deface their Stately Treasures
Anguish and the Tomb

Hum by in Muffled Coaches
Lest they wonder Why
Any for the Press of Smiling
Interrupt to die



Poem Sweet safe Houses - Emily Dickinson
