I like her work a lot. I am not surprised that she suffered from epilepsy.

the one I like the most....

We grow accustomed to the Dark
When light is put away
As when the Neighbor holds the Lamp
To witness her Goodbye

A MomentWe uncertain step
For newness of the night
Thenfit our Vision to the Dark
And meet the Roaderect

And so of largerDarkness
Those Evenings of the Brain
When not a Moon disclose a sign
Or Starcome outwithin

The Bravestgrope a little
And sometimes hit a Tree
Directly in the Forehead
But as they learn to see

Either the Darkness alters
Or something in the sight
Adjusts itself to Midnight
And Life steps almost straight.
