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

Part One: Life

LXXIII


I MANY times thought peace had come,
When peace was far away;
As wrecked men deem they sight the land
At centre of the sea,
  
And struggle slacker, but to prove,        5
As hopelessly as I,
How many the fictitious shores
Before the harbor lie.
