What Soft Cherubic Creatures

What Soft Cherubic Creatures

What Soft Cherubic Creatures
These Gentlewomen are
One would as soon assault a Plush
Or violate a Star

Such Dimity Convictions
A Horror so refined
Of freckled Human Nature
Of Deity ashamed

It’s such a common Glory
A Fisherman’s Degree
Redemption Brittle Lady
Be so ashamed of Thee



Poem What Soft Cherubic Creatures - Emily Dickinson
