i could edit my post to add this, but it stands on its own just fine, thanks...


"as imperceptibly as grief
the summer lapsed away, --
too imperceptible, at last,
to seem like perfidy.

a quietness distilled,
as twilight long begun,
or nature, spending with herself
sequestered afternoon.

the dusk drew earlier in,
the morning foreign shone, --
a courteous, yet harrowing grace,
as guest who would be gone.

and thus, without a wing,
or service of a keel,
our summer made her light escape
into the beautiful".

--"as imperceptibly as grief" by emily dickinson
