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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

LIV


I WENT to heaven,—
’T was a small town,
Lit with a ruby,
Lathed with down.
Stiller than the fields        5
At the full dew,
Beautiful as pictures
No man drew.
People like the moth,
Of mechlin, frames,        10
Duties of gossamer,
And eider names.
Almost contented
I could be
’Mong such unique        15
Society.
