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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

XXXII


IT was too late for man,
  But early yet for God;
Creation impotent to help,
But prayer remained our side.
  
How excellent the heaven,        5
When earth cannot be had;
How hospitable, then, the face
Of our old neighbor, God!
