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

Part Three: Love

XXXIII


I HELD a jewel in my fingers
And went to sleep.
The day was warm, and winds were prosy;
I said: “’T will keep.”
  
I woke and chid my honest fingers,—        5
The gem was gone;
And now an amethyst remembrance
Is all I own.
