There’s a Certain Slant of Light ( after Emily Dickinson )

There’s a certain Slant of light
as Eventide crests –    
Kyanite empyrean    
  O’re its flaming breasts      
     
 Deep repose, it doth evoke –    
  Diminished to hour    
Recalling – Memory extols    
  ‘Neath shady bower      
      
Life’s bounty, freely gathered    
 – What may be found –    
 Laid before a lambent throne    
  Our daily accounts!        
     
But, Woe! – What penalty doth wait      
  ‘pon crepuscular siege       
Of Outer Darkness eternal –    
  Should no fruit be reaped?      
~
