Fragmentário de Miss Dickinson

"I dwell in Possibility -
A fairer House than Prose -

More numerous of Windows -

Superior - for Doors -"

"I lost a World - the other day!

Has Anybody found?

You'll know it by the Row of Stars

Around its forehead bound."

"It was given to me by the Gods -

When I was a little Girl -
They give us Presents most - you know -

When you are new - and small."

"Parting is all we know of heaven,
And all we need of hell."

"Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne'er succeeded.

To comprehend a nectar

Requires sorest need."

"That Love is all there is,

Is all we know of Love;"

"The Grass so little has to do -

A Sphere of simple Green -
With only Butterflies to brood

And Bees to entertain -"

"The Soul selects her own Society -

Then - shuts the Door -

To her divine Majority -

Present no more -"

"Why - do they shut Me out of Heaven?

Did I sing - too loud?"
