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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

XL


I NEVER lost as much but twice,
And that was in the sod;
Twice have I stood a beggar
Before the door of God!
  
Angels, twice descending,        5
Reimbursed my store.
Burglar, banker, father,
I am poor once more!
