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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

XXVIII


SHE went as quiet as the dew
From a familiar flower.
Not like the dew did she return
At the accustomed hour!
  
She dropt as softly as a star        5
From out my summer’s eve;
Less skillful than Leverrier
It’s sorer to believe!
