The Frost was never seen

The Frost was never seen

The Frost was never seen
If met, too rapid passed,
Or in too unsubstantial Team
The Flowers notice first

A Stranger hovering round
A Symptom of alarm
In Villages remotely set
But search effaces him

Till some retrieveless Night
Our Vigilance at waste
The Garden gets the only shot
That never could be traced.

Unproved is much we know
Unknown the worst we fear
Of Strangers is the Earth the Inn
Of Secrets is the Air

To analyze perhaps
A Philip would prefer
But Labor vaster than myself
I find it to infer.



Poem The Frost was never seen - Emily Dickinson
