Emily Dickinson 


[1859]



Could live — did live —
Could die — did die —
Could smile opon the whole
Through faith in one he met not
To introduce his soul

Could go from scene familiar
To an untraversed spot —
Could contemplate the journey
With unpuzzled heart —

Such trust had one among us,
Among us not today —
We who saw the launching
Never sailed the Bay!
