Safe in Their Alabaster Chambers ~ A Classic American Poem by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

Safe in their Alabaster Chambers
Untouched by Morning
And untouched by Noon
Lie the meek members of the Resurrection
Rafter of Satin and Roof of Stone!

Grand go the years in the Crescent above them
Worlds scoop their Arcs
And Firmaments row
Diadems drop and Doges surrender
Soundless as dots on a Disc of Snow.
