Emily Dickinson (1830–86). Complete Poems. 1924.Part Two: Nature
Is there such a thing as day?
Could I see it from the mountains
If I were as tall as they?
Has it feathers like a bird?
Is it brought from famous countries
Of which I have never heard?
Oh, some wise man from the skies!
Please to tell a little pilgrim
Where the place called morning lies!
