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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

CXIII


I MEANT to find her when I came;
  Death had the same design;
But the success was his, it seems,
  And the discomfit mine.
  
I meant to tell her how I longed        5
  For just this single time;
But Death had told her so the first,
  And she had hearkened him.
  
To wander now is my abode;
  To rest,—to rest would be        10
A privilege of hurricane
  To memory and me.
