Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

You are watching: The moon was but a chin of gold

Part Two: Nature CIII
THE MOON was yet a chin of gold
  A night or two ago,
And now she transforms her perfect face
  Upon the world below.
  
Her forehead is of amplest blond;        5
  Her cheek choose beryl stone;
Her eye unto the summer dew
  The likest I have known.
  
Her lips the amber never ever part;
  But what have to be the smile        10
Upon her girlfriend she could bestow
  Were such her silver will!
  
And what a privilege to be
  But the remotest star!
For certainly her way might pass        15
  Beside your twinkling door.
  
Her bonnet is the firmament,
  The universe her shoe,
The stars the trinkets at she belt,
  Her dimities that blue.
