Way Ahead of Her Time.

(short lines, slant rhymes, use of the dash...I have two copies of her complete collection--be sure to look for the one that retains HER own use of punctuation, a lot of the reprints use old, incorrect edits of her work)

(listed as poem 917)

Love — is anterior to Life —
Posterior — to Death —
Initial of Creation, and
The Exponent of Earth —


(December 10, 1830 – May 15, 1886)

(Poetry Month!)
