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

Part Two: Nature

XXXIII


HOW happy is the little stone
That rambles in the road alone,
And does n’t care about careers,
And exigencies never fears;
Whose coat of elemental brown        5
A passing universe put on;
And independent as the sun,
Associates or glows alone,
Fulfilling absolute decree
In casual simplicity.        10
