Musicians Wrestle Everywhere by Emily Dickinson

Musicians wrestle everywhere –
All day – among the crowded air

I hear the silver strife –
And – walking – long before the morn –
Such transport breaks upon the town
I think it that New Life!

If is not Bird – it has no nest –
Nor Band – in brass and scarlet – drest –
Nor Tamborin – nor Man –
It is not Hymn from pulpit read

The Morning Stars the Treble led
On Time’s first Afternoon!

Some – say – it is the Spheres – at play!
Some say that bright Majority

Of vanished Dames – and Men!
Some – think it service in the place
Where we – with late – celestial face
Please God – shall Ascertain!
