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

Part Five: The Single Hound

XC


THE OVERTAKELESSNESS of those
Who have accomplished Death,
Majestic to me beyond
The majesties of Earth.
The soul her “not at Home”        5
Inscribes upon the flesh,
And takes her fair aerial gait
Beyond the hope of touch.
