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

Part Five: The Single Hound

XXXVII


“MORNING” means “Milking” to the Farmer
Dawn to the Apennines—
Dice to the Maid.
“Morning” means just Chance to the Lover—
Just Revelation to the Beloved.        5
Epicures date a breakfast by it!
Heroes a battle,
The Miller a flood,
Faint-going eyes their lapse
From sighing,        10
Faith, the Experiment of our Lord!
