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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

XIII


THAT short, potential stir
That each can make but once,
That bustle so illustrious
’T is almost consequence,
  
Is the éclat of death.        5
Oh, thou unknown renown
That not a beggar would accept,
Had he the power to spurn!
