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

Part One: Life

XXIII


’T WAS such a little, little boat
That toddled down the bay!
’T was such a gallant, gallant sea
That beckoned it away!
  
’T was such a greedy, greedy wave        5
That licked it from the coast;
Nor ever guessed the stately sails
My little craft was lost!
