Emily Dickinson

Long Years apart — can make no
Breach a second cannot fill —
The absence of the Witch does not
Invalidate the spell —

Who says the absence of a Witch

In-validates his spell

The embers of a Thousand Years
Uncovered by the Hand
That fondled them when they were Fire
Will stir and understand —
