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

Part Five: The Single Hound

LXXVII


I WATCHED her face to see which way
She took the awful news,
Whether she died before she heard—
Or in protracted bruise
Remained a few short years with us,        5
Each heavier than the last—
A further afternoon to fail,
As Flower at fall of Frost.
