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

Part One: Life

XXXI


I FOUND the phrase to every thought
I ever had, but one;
And that defies me,—as a hand
Did try to chalk the sun
  
To races nurtured in the dark;—        5
How would your own begin?
Can blaze be done in cochineal,
Or noon in mazarin?
