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

Part One: Life

CVIII


IF recollecting were forgetting,
  Then I remember not;
And if forgetting, recollecting,
  How near I had forgot!
And if to miss were merry,        5
  And if to mourn were gay,
How very blithe the fingers
  That gathered these to-day!
