The Tuesday Platform

"A something in a summer's Day
As slow her flambeaux burn away
Which solemnizes me.

A something in a summer's noon --
A depth -- an Azure -- a perfume --
Transcending ecstasy.

And still within a summer's night
A something so transporting bright
I clap my hands to see --

Then veil my too inspecting face
Lets such a subtle -- shimmering grace
Flutter too far for me --

The wizard fingers never rest --
The purple brook within the breast
Still chafes it narrow bed --

Still rears the East her amber Flag --
Guides still the sun along the Crag
His Caravan of Red --

So looking on -- the night -- the morn
Conclude the wonder gay --
And I meet, coming thro' the dews
Another summer's Day!"   ~ Emily Dickinson

Few things make me smile i.e. tulips in Spring and sun-kissed beaches in Summer. Greetings to all poets, wayfarers and friends. It's a beautiful day here in K.L and I'm looking forward to reading poetry with a cup of coffee. 

If you have any thoughts to share, ideas you wish to release into the wild or a world view to express, then you have come to the right place. Please share a poem of your choice and enjoy the company of your fellow scribes.

Annell, I tried to leave a comment on your blog but the post which appears to have been your Tuesday write does not seem to have a comment box.
