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

Part Five: The Single Hound

XXXVI


SHE died at play,
Gambolled away
Her lease of spotted hours,
Then sank as gaily as a Turk
Upon a couch of flowers.        5
Her ghost strolled softly o’er the hill
Yesterday and today,
Her vestments as the silver fleece,
Her countenance as spray.
