Emily Dickinson

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

Within my reach!


90

Within my reach!
I could have touched!

Soft sauntered thro' the village—
Sauntered as soft away!
So unsuspected Violets
Within the meadows go—
Too late for striving fingers
That passed, an hour ago!
