She sweeps with many-coloured brooms…

Oh, housewife in the evening west!  I’m obsessed with you and Emily…

Here are a few of the splendid Saigon sunsets.

She sweeps with many-colored brooms,
And leaves the shreds behind;
Oh, housewife in the evening west,
Come back, and dust the pond!

You dropped a purple ravelling in,
You dropped an amber thread;
And now you’ve littered all the East
With duds of emerald!

And still she plies her spotted brooms,
And still the aprons fly,
Till brooms fade softly into stars –
And then I come away.

Emily Dickinson
