Emily Dickinson

Dec. 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886


I've seen a dying eye...

by Emily Dickinson

I've seen a dying eye
Run round and round a room
In search of something, as it seemed,
Then cloudier become;
And then, obscure with fog,
And then be soldered down,
Without disclosing what it be,
'T were blessed to have seen.
