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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

C


’T IS whiter than an Indian pipe,
  ’T is dimmer than a lace;
No stature has it, like a fog,
  When you approach the place.
  
Not any voice denotes it here,        5
  Or intimates it there;
A spirit, how doth it accost?
  What customs hath the air?
  
This limitless hyperbole
  Each one of us shall be;        10
’T is drama, if (hypothesis)
  It be not tragedy!
