Emily Dickinson, 633

 
Ik seach gjin Wei - stikt Himeltek -
Ik wist - no slút de Hal -
De Ierde wiksele Hemisfear -
Ik tipte oan ’t Hielal -

En ’t glied tebek - en inkeld Ik -
In spikkel op in Bal -
Ik rekke op de Omtrek fuort -
Foarby de Klokkegalm -

 

I saw no Way - The Heavens were stitched -
I felt the Columns close -
The Earth reversed her Hemispheres -
I touched the Universe -

And back it slid - and I alone -
A speck opon a Ball -
Went out opon Circumference -
Beyond the Dip of Bell -
