Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Five: The Single Hound

LXXVI


TOO cold is this
To warm with sun,
Too stiff to bended be,
To joint this agate were a feat
Outstaring masonry.        5
How went the agile kernel out—
Contusion of the husk,
Nor rip, nor wrinkle indicate,—
But just an Asterisk.
