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

Part Two: Nature

XCII


TO my quick ear the leaves conferred;
  The bushes they were bells;
I could not find a privacy
  From Nature’s sentinels.
  
In cave if I presumed to hide,        5
  The walls began to tell;
Creation seemed a mighty crack
  To make me visible.
