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

Part Five: The Single Hound

LXXV


’T WAS comfort in her dying room
To hear the living clock,
A short relief to have the wind
Walk boldly up and knock,
Diversion from the dying theme        5
To hear the children play,
But wrong, the mere
That these could live,—
And This of ours must die!
