Emily Dickinson, 926

 
Ik stapte hoeden - têd
Fan Planke A nei B
Ik fielde Stjerren om myn Holle
By myn Fuotten See -

’k Wist inkeld - dy’t no komt
Lit my gjin tombree mear -
’t Joech my dy wiffe Trêd - troch guon
Wol Underfining neamd -

 

I stepped from Plank to Plank
A slow and cautious way
The Stars about my Head I felt
About my Feet the Sea -

I knew not but the next
Would be my final inch -
This gave me that precarious Gait
Some call Experience -

 

F926 (J875). Ofbylding: Amherst College Library, Emily Dickinson Collection, 91.
