Emily

Most keep the sabbath
           going to church.
She kept it staying home

Lest houses of the
           houseled should
Miss the Kingdom come

And Deity on
           breezes borne
One holy morn should visit

Her Father's garden
           all unseen
Except for one exquisite

Nodding of the tulip heads
           and no one
There to meet Him

But, garreted, on watch alone,
           one cherub
There to greet Him.
