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

Part Five: The Single Hound

LIV


A CAP of lead across the sky
Was tight and surly drawn,
We could not find the Mighty Face,
The figure was withdrawn.
  
A chill came up as from a shaft,        5
Our noon became a well,
A thunder storm combines the charms
Of Winter and of Hell.
