Emily Dickinson – Civilization — spurns — the Leopard!Follow
Civilization — spurns — the Leopard!
Was the Leopard — bold?
Deserts — never rebuked her Satin
Ethiop — her Gold
Tawny — her Customs
She was Conscious
Spotted — her Dun Gown
This was the Leopard's nature — Signor
Need — a keeper — frown?
Pity — the Pard — that left her Asia
Memories — of Palm
Cannot be stifled — with Narcotic
Nor suppressed — with Balm
