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

Part Five: The Single Hound

XLVIII


MARCH is the month of expectation,
The things we do not know,
The Persons of prognostication
Are coming now.
We try to sham becoming firmness,        5
But pompous joy
Betrays us, as his first betrothal
Betrays a boy.
