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

Part One: Life

VII


WITHIN my reach!
I could have touched!
I might have chanced that way!
Soft sauntered through the village,
Sauntered as soft away!        5
So unsuspected violets
Within the fields lie low,
Too late for striving fingers
That passed, an hour ago.
