Is that what this poem of Emily's is referring to? I could never make sense of it:

There is a pain - so utter -
It swallows substance up -
Then covers the Abyss with Trance -
So Memory can step
Around - across - upon it -
As One within a Swoon -
Goes safely - where an open eye -
Would drop Him - Bone by Bone -[1]

Yeah, the etymology on that one doesn't soften the blow [surnamedb.com]

Hahahaha!!! very apt .. one of my mates is a Dickinson ! He is in trouble now lol.

did you notice the "King Edward 111" rather than III? I don't think there were 111 Edward's as king by the 14th century!

@phxbillcee maybe my reference isn't that knowledgeable, huh? The Greek translation came up in several places though
