Poemsby Emily Dickinson

Charlotte Brontë's Grave

 All overgrown by cunning moss,   All interspersed with weed, The little cage of 'Currer Bell,'   In quiet Haworth laid. 
 This bird, observing others,   When frosts too sharp became, Retire to other latitudes,   Quietly did the same, 
 But differed in returning;   Since Yorkshire hills are green, Yet not in all the nests I meet   Can nightingale be seen. 
 Gathered from many wanderings,   Gethsemane can tell Through what transporting anguish   She reached the asphodel! 
 Soft fall the sounds of Eden   Upon her puzzled ear; Oh, what an afternoon for heaven,   When 'Brontë' entered there!
