 ’Silence has settled’, 1890 - Nikolay Dubovskoy (1859–1918)

Martin Johnson Heade - Blue Morpho Butterfly

Nature rarer uses Yellow
Than another Hue.
Saves she all of that for Sunsets
Prodigal of Blue

Spending Scarlet, like a Woman
Yellow she affords
Only scantly and selectly
Like a Lover’s Words.

Emily Dickinson, “J:1045” (via litverve)
