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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

XIV


I WENT to thank her,
But she slept;
Her bed a funnelled stone,
With nosegays at the head and foot,
That travellers had thrown,        5
  
Who went to thank her;
But she slept.
’T was short to cross the sea
To look upon her like, alive,
But turning back ’t was slow.        10
