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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

IX


A TRAIN went through a burial gate,
A bird broke forth and sang,
And trilled, and quivered, and shook his throat
Till all the churchyard rang;
  
And then adjusted his little notes,        5
And bowed and sang again.
Doubtless, he thought it meet of him
To say good-by to men.
