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

Part Five: The Single Hound

XCIII


PAPA above!
          Regard a Mouse
O’erpowered by the Cat;
Reserve within thy Kingdom
A “mansion” for the Rat!        5
  
Sung in seraphic cupboards
To nibble all the day,
While unsuspecting cycles
Wheel pompously away.
