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

Part Two: Nature

XXIX


THE ONE that could repeat the summer day
Were greater than itself, though he
Minutest of mankind might be.
And who could reproduce the sun,
At period of going down—        5
The lingering and the stain, I mean—
When Orient has been outgrown,
And Occident becomes unknown,
His name remain.
