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

Part Five: The Single Hound

XXIX


DOWN Time’s quaint stream
Without an oar,
We are enforced to sail,
Our Port—a secret—
Our Perchance—a gale.        5
What Skipper would
Incur the risk,
What Buccaneer would ride,
Without a surety from the wind
Or schedule of the tide?        10
