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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

CI


SHE laid her docile crescent down,
  And this mechanic stone
Still states, to dates that have forgot,
  The news that she is gone.
  
So constant to its stolid trust,        5
  The shaft that never knew,
It shames the constancy that fled
  Before its emblem flew.
