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

Part One: Life

CXXXVI


I STEPPED from plank to plank
  So slow and cautiously;
The stars about my head I felt,
  About my feet the sea.
  
I knew not but the next        5
  Would be my final inch,—
This gave me that precarious gait
  Some call experience.
