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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

LXXVII


GREAT streets of silence led away
To neighborhoods of pause;
Here was no notice, no dissent,
No universe, no laws.
  
By clocks ’t was morning, and for night        5
The bells at distance called;
But epoch had no basis here,
For period exhaled.
