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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

CXXXVIII


FAR from love the Heavenly Father
  Leads the chosen child;
Oftener through realm of briar
  Than the meadow mild,
  
Oftener by the claw of dragon        5
  Than the hand of friend,
Guides the little one predestined
  To the native land.
