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

Part Five: The Single Hound

CXXVII


ON my volcano grows the grass,—
A meditative spot,
An area for a bird to choose
Would be the general thought.
  
How red the fire reeks below,        5
How insecure the sod—
Did I disclose, would populate
With awe my solitude.
