Those fair fictitious People

Those fair fictitious People

Those fair fictitious People
The Women plucked away
From our familiar Lifetime
The Men of Ivory

Those Boys and Girls, in Canvas
Who stay upon the Wall
In Everlasting Keepsake
Can Anybody tell?

We trust in places perfecter
Inheriting Delight
Beyond our faint Conjecture
Our dizzy Estimate

Remembering ourselves, we trust
Yet Blesseder than We
Through Knowing where We only hope
Receiving where we pray

Of Expectation also
Anticipating us
With transport, that would be a pain
Except for Holiness

Esteeming us as Exile
Themself admitted Home
Through easy Miracle of Death
The Way ourself, must come



Poem Those fair fictitious People - Emily Dickinson
