Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

Is it dead—Find it


417

Is it dead—Find it—
Out of sound—Out of sight—
"Happy"? Which is wiser—
You, or the Wind?
"Conscious"? Won't you ask that—
Of the low Ground?

"Homesick"? Many met it—
Even through them—This
Cannot testify—
Themself—as dumb—
