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

Part Five: The Single Hound

CXXXIII


HAD this one day not been,
Or could it cease to be—
How smitten, how superfluous
Were every other day!
  
Lest Love should value less        5
What Loss would value more,
Had it the stricken privilege—
It cherishes before.
