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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

CXIV


I SING to use the waiting,
  My bonnet but to tie,
And shut the door unto my house;
  No more to do have I,
  
Till, his best step approaching,        5
  We journey to the day,
And tell each other how we sang
  To keep the dark away.
