Out of sight? What of that?

See the Bird — reach it!

Curve by Curve — Sweep by Sweep —

Round the Steep Air —

Danger! What is that to Her?

Better 'tis to fail — there —

Than debate — here —

Blue is blue — the World through —

Amber — Amber — Dew — Dew —

Seek — Friend — and see —

Heaven is shy of Earth — that's all —

Bashful Heaven — thy Lovers small —

Hide — too — from thee —

— Emily Dickinson [Johnson: 703]
