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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

XCVIII


NOT any higher stands the grave
  For heroes than for men;
Not any nearer for the child
  Than numb three-score and ten.
  
This latest leisure equal lulls        5
  The beggar and his queen;
Propitiate this democrat
  By summer’s gracious mien.
