ON BEING “SCANDALIZED”

#675

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 -

Emily Dickinson
