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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

LVIII


POMPLESS no life can pass away;
    The lowliest career
To the same pageant wends its way
    As that exalted here.
How cordial is the mystery!        5
    The hospitable pall
A “this way” beckons spaciously,—
    A miracle for all!
