Go back to The Drop, that wrestles in the Sea --

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
The Drop, that wrestles in the Sea --

The Drop, that wrestles in the Sea --
Forgets her own locality --
As I -- toward Thee --

She knows herself an incense small --
Yet small -- she sighs -- if All -- is All --
How larger -- be?

The Ocean -- smiles -- at her Conceit --
But she, forgetting Amphitrite --
Pleads -- "Me"?
