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

Part Five: The Single Hound

CXLII


TO pile like Thunder to its close,
Then crumble grand away,
While everything created hid—
This would be Poetry:
Or Love,—the two coeval came—        5
We both and neither prove,
Experience either, and consume—
For none see God and live.
