      A Light exists in Spring
      Not present on the Year
      At any other period --
      When March is scarcely here

      A Color stands abroad
      On Solitary Fields
      That Science cannot overtake
      But Human Nature feels.

      It waits upon the Lawn,
      It shows the furthest Tree
      Upon the furthest Slope you know
      It almost speaks to you.

      Then as Horizons step
      Or Noons report away
      Without the Formula of sound
      It passes and we stay --

      A quality of loss
      Affecting our Content
      As Trade had suddenly encroached
      Upon a Sacrament.

      - Emily Dickinson
