This Dust, and its Feature by Emily Dickinson

This Dust, and its Feature --
Accredited -- Today --
Will in a second Future --
Cease to identify --

This Mind, and its measure --
A too minute Area
For its enlarged inspection's
Comparison -- appear --

This World, and its species
A too concluded show
For its absorbed Attention's
Remotest scrutiny

I'm Nobody! Who are you?

Because I could not stop for Death

Nobody knows this little Rose

I started Early ,Took my Dog

Awake ye muses nine

If I can stop one Heart from breaking

My life closed twice before its close

Heart! We will forget him!
