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

Part Five: The Single Hound

CXXXI


TO see her is a picture,
To hear her is a tune,
To know her an intemperance
As innocent as June;
By which to be undone        5
Is dearer than Redemption—
Which never to receive,
Makes mockery of melody
It might have been to live.
