full moon

I watched the Moon around the House
by Emily Dickinson

I watched the Moon around the House
Until upon a Pane —
She stopped — a Traveller’s privilege — for Rest —
And there upon I gazed — as at a stranger —
The Lady in the Town
Doth think no incivility
To lift her Glass — upon –But never Stranger justified
The Curiosity
Like Mine — for not a Foot — nor Hand —
Nor Formula — had she –But like a Head — a Guillotine
Slid carelessly away —
Did independent, Amber —
Sustain her in the sky –Or like a Stemless Flower —
Upheld in rolling Air
By finer Gravitations —
Than bind Philosopher –No Hunger — had she — nor an Inn —
Her Toilette — to suffice —
Nor Avocation — nor Concern
For little Mysteries

As harass us — like Life — and Death —
And Afterwards — or Nay —
But seemed engrossed to Absolute —
With shining — and the Sky —

The privilege to scrutinize
Was scarce upon my Eyes
When, with a Silver practise —
She vaulted out of Gaze —

And next — I met her on a Cloud —
Myself too far below
To follow her superior Road —
Or its advantage — Blue —
