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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

XLI


LET down the bars, O Death!
The tired flocks come in
Whose bleating ceases to repeat,
Whose wandering is done.
  
Thine is the stillest night,        5
Thine the securest fold;
Too near thou art for seeking thee,
Too tender to be told.
