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

Part Three: Love

XXV


WILD nights! Wild nights!
Were I with thee,
Wild nights should be
Our luxury!
  
Futile the winds        5
To a heart in port,—
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart.
  
Rowing in Eden!
Ah! the sea!        10
Might I but moor
To-night in thee!
