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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

VII


EXULTATION is the going
Of an inland soul to sea,—
Past the houses, past the headlands,
Into deep eternity!
  
Bred as we, among the mountains,        5
Can the sailor understand
The divine intoxication
Of the first league out from land?
