The Symptom of the Gale

The Symptom of the Gale

The Symptom of the Gale
The Second of Dismay
Between its Rumor and its Face
Is almost Revelry

The Houses firmer root
The Heavens cannot be found
The Upper Surfaces of things
Take covert in the Ground

The Mem’ry of the Sun
Not Any can recall
Although by Nature’s sterling Watch
So scant an interval

And when the Noise is caught
And Nature looks around
“We dreamed it”? She interrogates
“Good Morning” We propound?



Poem The Symptom of the Gale - Emily Dickinson
