I suspect that this Season 4 episode was inspired by Emmett Lee Dickinson’s poem “I’ve heard Another talk, sometime," below on the left. Dickinson’s poem also inspired third cousin Emily to pen her poem “I’ve heard an Organ talk, sometimes,” below on the right.
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
I’ve heard Another talk, sometimes
In a Restaurant Booth,
And understood each word he said –
Yet held my breath, forsooth –
And risen up – he’d gone away,
His secrets still his Truth –
Yet – knew not what was heard by me
In that old Diner Booth.
By Emily Dickinson:
I've heard an Organ talk, sometimes
In a Cathedral Aisle,
And understood no word it said –
Yet held my breath, the while –
And risen up – and gone away,
A more Bernardine Girl --
Yet – know not what was done to me
In that old Chapel Aisle.
