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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

XLIX


THEY dropped like flakes, they dropped like stars,
    Like petals from a rose,
When suddenly across the June
    A wind with fingers goes.
  
They perished in the seamless grass,—        5
    No eye could find the place;
But God on his repealless list
    Can summon every face.
