Table of Contents

A bird came down the walk

A clock stopped?not the mantel's

A door just opened on a street?

A drop fell on the apple tree

After a hundred years

A light exists in spring

A little road not made of man

"A long, long sleep, a famous sleep"

Ample make this bed

A narrow fellow in the grass

An everywhere of silver

A shady friend for torrid days

A thought went up my mind to-day

Because I could not stop for Death

Before you thought of spring

Death sets a thing significant

Delight becomes pictorial

Departed to the judgment

Each life converges to some centre

For each ecstatic instant

God gave a loaf to every bird

God made a little gentian

God permits industrious angels

"Going to him! Happy letter! Tell him?"

Good night! which put the candle out?

Heaven is what I cannot reach!

He fumbles at your spirit

Her final summer was it

Hope is the thing with feathers

I breathed enough to learn the trick

I cannot live with you

"I died for beauty, but was scarce"

I dreaded that first robin so

I felt a cleaving in my mind

I felt a funeral in my brain

If I can stop one heart from breaking

I found the phrase to every thought

If you were coming in the fall

I had been hungry all the years

"I had no time to hate, because"

I heard a fly buzz when I died

I held a jewel in my fingers

I know a place where summer strives

I like to see it lap the miles

I lived on dread: to those who know

"I'll tell you how the sun rose,?"

I meant to find her when I came

I measure every grief I meet

I'm nobody! Who are you?

"I never hear the word "escape"

I never saw a moor

I stepped from plank to plank

I taste a liquor never brewed

It dropped so low in my regard

It is an honorable thought

It's all I have to bring to-day

"It's like the light,?"

It struck me everyday

"It was not death, for I stood up"

"I went to heaven,?"

I years had been from home

Like trains of cars on tracks of plush

Me! Come! My dazzled face

My life closed twice before it close

My nosegays are for captives

Nature rarer uses yellow

"Nature, the gentlest mother"

Not in this world to see his face

Of all the souls that stand create

One need not be a chamber to be haunted

Our journey had advanced

Pain has an element of blank

Presentiment is that long shadow on the lawn

Safe in their alabaster chambers

"She rose to his requirement, dropped"

She sweeps with many-colored brooms

So bashful when I spied her

So proud she was to die

The brain within its groove

The bustle in a house

The cricket sang

"The day came so slow, till five o'clock"

"The dying need but little, dear,?"

The heart asks pleasure first

"The nearest dream recedes, unrealized"

The only ghost I ever saw

The pedigree of honey

There is no frigate like a book

There's a certain slant of light

There's been a death in the opposite house

The show is not the show

"The sky is low, the clouds are mean"

The thought beneath so slight a film

The wind begun to rock the grass

The wind tapped like a tired man

"They dropped like flakes, they dropped like stars"

They say that 'time assuages'?

This is my letter to the world

This is the land the sunset washes

"Tie the strings to my life, my Lord"

To my quick ear the leaves conferred

T was just this time last year I died

Two butterflies went out at noon

Victory comes late

"We like March, his shoes are purple"

We outgrow love like other things

We play at paste

Wild nights! Wild nights!

"You left me, sweet, two legacies,?"
