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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

LXXXI


AFTER a hundred years
Nobody knows the place,—
Agony, that enacted there,
Motionless as peace.
  
Weeds triumphant ranged,        5
Strangers strolled and spelled
At the lone orthography
Of the elder dead.
  
Winds of summer fields
Recollect the way,—        10
Instinct picking up the key
Dropped by memory.
