No Crowd That Has Occurred - Poem by Emily Dickinson

515

No Crowd that has occurred
Exhibit—I suppose
That General Attendance
That Resurrection—does—

Circumferen ce be full—
The long restricted Grave
Assert her Vital Privilege—
The Dust—connect—and live—

On Atoms—features place—
All Multitudes that were
Efface in the Comparison—
As Suns—dissolve a star—

Solemnity—prevail—
Its Individual Doom
Possess each separate Consciousness—
August—Absorbed&mda sh;Numb—

What Duplicate—exist—
What Parallel can be—
Of the Significance of This—
To Universe—and Me?
