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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

CX


I WISH I knew that woman’s name,
  So, when she comes this way,
To hold my life, and hold my ears,
  For fear I hear her say
  
She ’s “sorry I am dead”, again,        5
  Just when the grave and I
Have sobbed ourselves almost to sleep,—
  Our only lullaby.
