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
