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

Part Two: Nature

II


WILL there really be a morning?
Is there such a thing as day?
Could I see it from the mountains
If I were as tall as they?
  
Has it feet like water-lilies?        5
Has it feathers like a bird?
Is it brought from famous countries
Of which I have never heard?
  
Oh, some scholar! Oh, some sailor!
Oh, some wise man from the skies!        10
Please to tell a little pilgrim
Where the place called morning lies!
