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

Part One: Life

LXXXIV


’T IS little I could care for pearls
  Who own the ample sea;
Or brooches, when the Emperor
  With rubies pelteth me;
  
Or gold, who am the Prince of Mines;        5
  Or diamonds, when I see
A diadem to fit a dome
  Continual crowning me.
