Emily Dickinson

Dec. 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886


She went as quiet as the dew...

by Emily Dickinson

She went as quiet as the dew
From a familiar flower.
Not like the dew did she return
At the accustomed hour!

She dropt as softly as a star
From out my summer's eve;
Less skilful than Leverrier
It's sorer to believe!
