Emily Dickinson
Dust is the only Secret --

Dust is the only Secret --
Death, the only One
You cannot find out all about
In his "native town."

Nobody knew "his Father" --
Never was a Boy --
Hadn't any playmates,
Or "Early history" --

Industrious! Laconic!
Punctual! Sedate!
Bold as a Brigand!
Stiller than a Fleet!

Builds, like a Bird, too!
Christ robs the Nest --
Robin after Robin
Smuggled to Rest!

(#153)
