Saturday Afternoon (Poem by Emily Dickinson)

Emily Dickinson

Saturday Afternoon
By Emily Dickinson


From all the jails the boys and girls
    Ecstatically leap, — 
Beloved, only afternoon
    That prison doesn't keep.

They storm the earth and stun the air,
    A mob of solid bliss.
Alas! that frowns could lie in wait
    For such a foe as this!
