'Tis customary as we part
'Tis not that Dying hurts us so
'Tis so appalling — it exhilarates
'Twas just this time, last year, I died
'Twas like a Maelstrom, with a notch
'Twould ease — a Butterfly

A Bee his burnished Carriage
A Bird Came Down (class page)
A Bird came down the Walk (328)
A Book
A Burdock—clawed my Gown (229)
A Charm invests a face (421)
A Cloud withdrew from the Sky
A Coffin — is a small Domain
A darting fear — a pomp — a tear
A Day
A Day! Help! Help! Another Day!
A Death blow is a Life blow to Some
A Dew Sufficed Itself
A door just opened on a street
A doubt if it be Us
A Drop fell on the Apple Tree (794)
A Dying Tiger—moaned for Drink (566)
A feather from the Whippoorwill
A first Mute Coming
A fuzzy fellow, without feet
A happy lip—breaks sudden (353)
A House upon the Height
A Lady red—amid the Hill (74)
A lane of Yellow led the eye (1650)
A light exists in spring
A little bread — a crust — a crumb
A little East of Jordan (59)
A Little Madness in the Spring
A little road not made man
A long, long sleep, a famous sleep
A loss of something ever felt I (959)
A Man
A Man may make a Remark
A Man may make a Remark (952)
A Mien to move a Queen (283)
A Modest Lot, A Fame Petite
A Moth the hue of this (841)
A Murmur in the Trees—to note (416)
A Narrow Fellow in the Grass
A nearness to Tremendousness (963)
A Night—there lay the Days between (471)
A Planted Life — diversified
A poor — torn heart — a tattered heart
A Portrait
A precious Mouldering
A precious—mouldering pleasure (371)
A Prison gets to be a friend
A Prompt Executive Bird is the Jay
A Rose
A Route of Evanescence
A science — so the Savants say
A Secret told
A sepal, petal, and a thorn
A Service of Song
A Shade upon the mind there passes
A shady friend for torrid days
A Sickness Of This World It Most Occasions
A single Screw of Flesh (263)
A slash of Blue
A Solemn thing within the Soul
A solemn thing—it was—I said (483)
A something in a summer's Day (122)
A still—Volcano—Life (601)
A Syllable
A thought went up my mind to-day
A throe upon the features (71)
A toad can die of light!
A Tongue—to tell Him I am true! (400)
A Tooth upon Our Peace
A Train Went Through A Burial Gate
A transport one cannot contain
A Visitor in Marl
A Weight with Needles on the pounds (264)
A Well
A Wife—at daybreak I shall be (461)
A Word is Dead
A Wounded Deer
Abraham to Kill Him
Absence disembodies—so does Death (860)
Absent Place — an April Day
Adrift! A little boat adrift!
Afraid! Of whom am I afraid?
After a hundred years
After great pain a formal feeling comes (J341, F372)
Aftermath
Again — his voice is at the door
Ah, Moon—and Star! (240)
Ah, Necromancy Sweet!
Ah, Teneriffe!
All but Death, can be Adjusted
All Circumstances are the Frame
All forgot for recollecting (966)
All I may, if small
All overgrown by cunning moss
All the letters I can write
All these my banners be
Almost
Alone, I cannot be (298)
Along The Potomac
Alpine Glow
Alter! When the Hills do
Although I put away his life
Always Mine!
Ambition cannot find him
American Literature Digital Anthology (Beginnings through 1914)
Ample make this Bed
An altered look about the hills
An awful Tempest mashed the air
An English Breeze
An everywhere of silver
An Hour is a Sea
An ignorance a Sunset
And this of all my Hopes (913)
Angels, in the early morning
Answer July (386)
Apocalypse
Apology for Her
Apotheosis
Apparently with no Surprise
Arcturus is his other name (70)
Artists wrestled here!
As by the dead we love to sit
As Children bid the Guest
As Children bid the Guest "Good Night" (133)
As Everywhere of Silver
As far from pity, as complaint
As Frost is best conceived
As if I asked a common Alms
As if some little Arctic flower
As if the Sea should part
As imperceptibly as grief
As One does Sickness over
As plan for Noon and plan for Night
As Sleigh Bells seem in summer
As the Starved Maelstrom laps the Navies
As Watchers hang upon the East
As we pass Houses musing slow
As Well as Jesus?
Aspiration
Astra Castra
At Half-Past Three A Single Bird
At last, to be identified!
At Last, to Be Identified!
At least—to pray—is left—is left (502)
Aurora
Autumn
Autumn — overlooked my Knitting
Awake ye muses nine, sing me a strain divine (1)
Away from Home are some and I (821)
Baffled for just a day or two
Banish Air from Air (854)
Be Mine the Doom
Beauty — be not caused — It Is
Because I could not stop for Death (476)
Because I could not stop for Death (class page)
Because I could not stop for death 1890
Because the Bee may blameless hum
Because the Bee may blameless hum (869)
Beclouded
Bee! I'm expecting you!
Bee! I'm expecting you! (1035)
Bee! I’m Expecting You!
Bees are Black, with Gilt Surcingles
Before He comes we weigh the Time!
Before I got my eye put out
Before the ice is in the pools
Before you thought of spring
Behind Me — dips Eternity
Belshazzar Had A Letter
Bequest
Bereaved of all, I went abroad
Bereavement in their death to feel (645)
Besides the Autumn poets sing
Besides this May
Best Gains—must have the Losses' Test (684)
Best Things dwell out of Sight (998)
Better—than Music! For I—who heard it (503)
Between My Country — and the Others
Blazing in Gold and quenching in Purple (228)
Bless God, he went as soldiers
Bloom upon the Mountain—stated (667)
Bound—a trouble (269)
Braind within its groove, The
Bring me the sunset in a cup
Bustle in a house
But little Carmine hath her face
By a flower — By a letter
By Chivalries as tiny
By my Window have I for Scenery
By such and such an offering
By The Sea
Chartless
Childish Griefs
Chillin' Wit Emily D.
Civilization — spurns — the Leopard!
Cobwebs
Cocoon
Cocoon above! Cocoon below!
Color - Caste - Denomination - (970)
Come slowly
Come Slowly—Eden (211)
Conjecturing a Climate (562)
Conscious am I in my Chamber
Consecration
Contrast
Could I but ride indefinite (661)
Could I—then—shut the door (220)
Could live — did live
Could—I do more—for Thee (447)
Crisis is a Hair
Crumbling is not an instant's Act (997)
Dare you see a Soul
Dare you see a Soul at the White Heat? (365)
Dawn
Dawn (Version 2)
Dear March - Come in - (1320)
Dear March, Come In!
Death
Death And Life
Death is a Dialogue between
Death is potential to that Man (548)
Death Leaves Us homesick, Who Behind
Death sets a thing of signigicant
Death sets a Thing significant
Deed
Defrauded I a Butterfly
Delayed till she had ceased to know
Delight becomes pictorial
Delight is as the flight (257)
Denial — is the only fact
Departed to the judgment
Deprived of other Banquet
Desire
Despair's advantage is achieved
Despair's advantage is achieved (799)
Did Our Best Moment last
Did the Harebell loose her girdle
Did we disobey Him? (267)
Did you ever stand in a Cavern's Mouth (590)
Disenchantment
Distrustful of the Gentian
Do People moulder equally
Don't put up my Thread and Needle
Don't put up my Thread and Needle (617)
Doom is the House without the Door
Doubt Me! My Dim Companion! (275)
Drab Habitation of Whom?
Drama's Vitallest Expression is the Common Day
Drama's Vitallest Expression is the Common Day (741)
Dreams
Dreams—are well—but Waking's better (450)
Dropped into the Ether Acre (665)
Drowning Is Not So Pitiful
Dust is the only Secret
Dying
Dying! Dying in the night!
Dying! To be afraid of thee
Each life converges to some centre
Each Scar I'll keep for Him
Each Scar I'll keep for Him (877)
Each Second is the last
Each That We Lose Takes Part Of Us
Elysium is as far as to
Emancipation
Embarrassment of one another
Emily di*kinson's Coconut Cake Recipe
Empty my Heart, of Thee (587)
Ending
Endow the Living—with the Tears (521)
Epitaph
Escaping backward to perceive
Essential Oils — are wrung
Eternity
Evening
Except the Heaven had come so near
Except To Heave She Is Nought
Except to Heaven, she is nought
Exclusion (The soul selects her own society)
Exhilaration—is within (383)
Expectation — is Contentment
Experience
Experience is the Angled Road
Experiment To Me
Exultation is the going
Fairer through Fading—as the Day (938)
Faith — is the Pierless Bridge
Fame is a bee (1763)
Fame is a fickle food (1659)
Fame is the tine that Scholars leave (866)
Fame of Myself, to justify
Far From Love The Heavenly Father
Father, I Bring Thee Not Myself
Few Get Enough, Enough Is One
Finding is the first Act
Finite—to fail, but infinite to Venture (847)
Fire
First Robin
Fitter to see Him, I may be (968)
Flowers — Well — if anybody
For Death—or rather (382)
For each ecstatic instant
For every Bird a Nest
For largest Woman's Hearth I knew (309)
For this — accepted Breath
Forbidden Fruit (I)
Forbidden Fruit (II)
Forever at His side to walk (246)
Forever—is composed of Nows (624)
Forget! The lady with the Amulet (438)
Forgotten
Four Trees — upon a solitary Acre
Frequently the wood are pink (6)
Friends
From Blank to Blank
From Cocoon forth a Butterfly
From The Chrysalis
From Us She wandered now a Year
Funeral in my brain
Funny — to be a Century
Further in Summer than the Birds (1068)
Garland for Queens, may be
Give little Anguish (310)
Given in Marriage unto Thee
Glee—The great storm is over (619)
Glowing is her Bonnet
God gave a Loaf to every Bird
God is a distant—stately Lover (357)
God made a little Gentian (442)
God permit industrious angels
Going to Heaven!
Going to Heaven!
Going to Him! Happy letter!
Going to him! Happy letter! Tell him
Good Morning — Midnight
Good night! which put the candle out?
Good night, because we must
Good to hide, and hear 'em hunt!
Gratitude—is not the mention (989)
Great Caesar! Condescend
Grief is a Mouse
Griefs
Growth of Man—like Growth of Nature
Had I not This, or This, I said (904)
Had I presumed to hope
Have any like Myself
Have you got a Brook in your little heart
He forgot—and I—remembered
He fought like those Who've nought to lose
He fought like those Who've nought to lose (759)
He found my Being—set it up
He fumbles at your Soul (315)
He fumbles at your spirit
He gave away his Life
He outstripped Time with but a Bout
He parts Himself—like Leaves
He put the Belt around my life (273)
He strained my faith (497)
He told a homely tale
He touched me, so I live to know
He was weak, and I was strong—then
He who in Himself believes
Heart, not so heavy as mine
Heart, We Will Forget Him
Heart, We Will Forget Him!
Heaven (575)
Heaven has different Signs—to me (575)
Heaven is so far of the Mind (370)
Heaven—is what I cannot reach! (239)
Her
Her breast is fit for pearls
Her final Summer was it
Her Grace is all she has—
Her smile was shaped like other smiles
Her Sweet turn to leave the Homestead (649)
Her sweet Weight on my Heart a Night (518)
Herein a Blossom lies
Her—"last Poems" (312)
High From The Earth I Heard A Bird
His Bill an Auger is (1034)
His Feet are shod with Gauze (916)
His mind of man, a secret makes (1663)
Home
Hope
Hope is the thing with feathers (254)
Hope is the thing with feathers - Eng. Comp. II
Houses—so the Wise Men tell me
How far is it to Heaven?
How fortunate the Grave
How happy I was if I could forget
How Happy Is The Little Stone
How many Flowers fail in Wood
How many times these low feet staggered
How noteless Men, and Pleiads, stand
How sick—to wait—in any place—but thine (368)
How Slow the Wind
How Still The Bells In Steeples Stand
How the old Mountains drip with Sunset (291)
How the Waters closed above Him
How well I knew Her not
I 've Got An Arrow Here
I am alive—I guess
I am ashamed—I hide (473)
I asked no other thing (621)
I breathed enough to learn the trick
I breathed enough to take the Trick
I bring an unaccustomed wine
I Came to buy a smile—today (223)
I can wade Grief (252)
I can't tell you—but you feel it
I can't tell you—but you feel it (65)
I cannot be ashamed
I cannot buy it—'tis not sold
I cannot dance upon my Toes
I cannot live with You (640)
I cautious, scanned my little life
I could bring You Jewels—had I a mind to (697)
I could die—to know (570)
I could not drink it, Sweet
I could not prove the Years had feet
I could suffice for Him, I knew
I died for Beauty — but was scarce
I Dwell in Possibility
I envy Seas, whereon He rides
I fear a Man of frugal Speech
I felt a cleaving in my mind
I Felt a Funeral in My Brain
I felt a Funeral, in my Brain (class page)
I felt my life with both my hands
I Felt My Life With Both My Hands
I found the phrase to every thought
I gained it so (359)
I had a guinea golden
I had been hungry, all the Years
I had no time to Hate (478)
I had no time to hate, because
I had some things that I called mine
I had the Glory—that will do (349)
I have a Bird in spring
I have a King, who does not speak
I have never seen
I Have No Life But This
I Have Not Told My Garden Yet
I haven't told my garden yet
I heard a Fly buzz (465)
I heard a Fly buzz - when I died (class page)
I held a Jewel in my fingers
I hide myself within my flower (903)
I keep my pledge
I know a place where summer strives
I know lives, I could miss (372)
I know that He exists
I like a look of Agony
I like to see it lap the Miles
I like to see it lap the Miles (43)
I lived on Dread (770)
I lived on dread; to those who know
I lost a World - the other day!
I made slow Riches but my Gain
I make His Crescent fill or lack
I many times thought Peace had come (739)
I meant to find Her when I came
I measure every Grief I meet (561)
I ment to find her when I came (718)
I met a King this afternoon!
I never hear that one is dead
I never hear the word
I never hear the word 'escape'
I never lost as much but twice
I Never Saw a Moor
I never told the buried gold
I Noticed People Disappeared
I often passed the village
I pay—in Satin Cash (402)
I reason, Earth is short
I reckon—when I count it all
I robbed the Woods
I saw no Way—The Heavens were stitched (378)
I send Two Sunsets (308)
I shall keep singing!
I shall know why—when Time is over
I Shall Not Live in Vain
I should not dare to leave my friend
I showed her Heights she never saw (446)
I sing to use the Waiting
I sometimes drop it, for a Quick (708)
I Started Early - Took my Dog
I stepped from plank to plank
I stole them from a Bee
I taste a liquor never brewed
I taste a liquor never brewed (214)
I think just how my shape will rise
I think the longest Hour of all
I tie my Hat—I crease my Shawl (443)
I took my Power in my Hand (540)
I tried to think a lonelier Thing
I want—it pleaded—All its life (731)
I was the slightest in the House
I watched the Moon around the House
I went to heaven
I Went to Heaven
I went to thank Her (363)
I Wish I Knew That Woman's Name
I Wonder If The Sepulchre
I Worked For Chaff, And Earning Wheat
I would distil a cup
I Years Had Been From Home
I'll send the feather from my Hat!
I'll send the feather from my Hat! (687)
I'm
I'm "wife"—I've finished that (199)
I'm ceded—I've stopped being Theirs
I'm ceded—I've stopped being Theirs (508)
I'm Nobody! Who Are You?
I'm the little
I'm the little "Heart's Ease" (176)
I'm the little (176)
I've Heard an Organ Talk Sometimes
I've heard an Organ talk, sometimes
I've heard an Organ talk, sometimes (183)
I've known a Heaven, like a Tent
I've none to tell me to but Thee
I've none to tell me to but Thee (881)
I've nothing else—to bring, You know
I've nothing else—to bring, You know (224)
I've seen a Dying Eye (547)
Ideals are the Fairly Oil (983)
If any sink, assure that this, now standing
If Blame be my side—forfeit Me (775)
If He dissolve—then—there is nothing
If I Can Stop
If I can stop one heart from breaking
If I could bribe them by a Rose
If I should cease to bring a Rose
If I should die
If I shouldn't be alive
If I shouldn't be alive (182)
If I'm lost—now (256)
If it had no pencil
If pain for peace prepares
If recollecting were forgetting
If she had been the Mistletoe
If the foolish, call them flowers
If this is
If this is "fading" (120)
If those I loved were lost
If What we could—were what we would (407)
If you were coming in the fall
If You Were Coming in the Fall
If You Were Coming in the Fall
If your Nerve, deny you (292)
Immortal Is An Ample Word
Immortality
Impossibility, like Wine
In A Library
In Ebon Box, when years have flown
In falling Timbers buried
In lands I never saw—they say
In rags mysterious as these
In Shadow
In This Short Life
In Vain
Inconceivably solemn!
Indian Summer
Invisible
Is Bliss then, such Abyss (340)
Is Heaven A Physician?
Is it true, dear Sue? (218)
It bloomed and dropt, a Single Noon
It can't be
It can't be "Summer"! (221)
It ceased to hurt me, though so slow
It did not surprise me
It don't sound so terrible—quite—as it did
It Dropped So Low -- In My Regard
It is a lonesome Glee
It is an honorable thought,
It is dead—Find it (417)
It is easy to work when the soul is at play (244)
It knew no lapse, nor Diminuation
It makes no difference abroad
It Makes No Difference Abroad
It might be lonelier
It sifts from Leaden Sieves - (311)
It struck me every day
It tossed—and tossed (723)
It troubled me as once I was
It was a Grave, yet bore no Stone
It was not Death, for I stood up (510)
It was too late for Man
It would have starved a Gnat
It's all I have to bring today
It's all I have to bring today (26)
It's coming—the postponeless Creature (390)
It's easy to invent a Life (724)
It's like the light
It's such a little thing to weep
It's such a little thing to weep (189)
I’m Nobody! Who Are You?
Jesus! thy Crucifix
Joy In Death
Just as He spoke it from his Hands (848)
Just lost, when I was saved!
Just so—Jesus—raps
Kill your Balm—and its Odors bless you
Knows how to forget! (433)
Lay This Laurel On The One
Least Bee that brew
Least Rivers—docile to some sea
Let Down The Bars, O Death!
Let Us play Yesterday

Lickety Splickety
Life's Trades
Life, and Death, and Giants
Life—is what we make of it
Light is sufficient to itself
Like Brooms of Steel (1252)
Like her the Saints retire
Like Mighty Foot Lights—burned the Red
Live In Vain
Look back on time with kindly eyes
Lost
Lost Faith
Lost Joy
Love
Love reckons by itself—alone
Love's Baptism
Love's Humility
Love—is anterior to Life
Love—is that later Thing than Death
Low at my problem bending
Loyalty
Luck is not chance (1350)
Make me a picture of the sun
Mama never forgets her birds
Many a phrase has the English language
Many cross the Rhine
March
May-Flower
Me from Myself—to banish (642)
Me! Come! My dazzled face
Me, change! Me, alter!
Midsummer, was it, when They died (962)
Mine
Mine—by the Right of the White Election! (528)
Morning—is the place for Dew
Morning—means
Morning—means "Milking"—to the Farmer (300)
Morns like these—we parted
Much Madness is divinest Sense
Musicians wrestle everywhere
Must be a Woe
Mute thy Coronation
My best Acquaintances are those (932)
My Country's Wardrobe
My Cricket
My Eye is fuller than my vase
My Faith is larger than the Hills
My friend attacks my friend!
My friend must be a Bird
My Garden
My Garden—like the Beach (484)
My life closed twice before its close (96)
My Life had stood—a Loaded Gun
My nosegays are for captives
My period had come for Prayer
My Reward for Being, was This (343)
My River runs to thee
My Soul—accused me—And I quailed (753)
My wheel is in the dark
My Worthiness is all my Doubt
Myself was formed—a Carpenter
Nature and God—I neither knew
Nature is what we see—
Nature rarer uses yellow
Nature's changes
Nature, the Gentlest Mother
Nature—sometimes sears a Sapling (314)
Nature—the Gentlest Mother is
Never for Society
New feet within my garden go (99)
No Bobolink—reverse His Singing
No Man can compass a Despair (477)
No matter—now—Sweet (704)
No Notice gave She, but a Change
No Other can reduce (982)
No Prisoner be (720)
No Rack can torture me (384)
No Romance sold unto
Nobody knows this little Rose
None can experience sting
Noon—is the Hinge of Day
Not "Revelation"—'tis—that waits (685)
Not All Die Early, Dying Young
Not Any Higher Stands The Grave
Not in this world to see his face
Not probable—The barest Chance
Not that We did, shall be the test (823)
Not With A Club The Heart Is Broken
Numen Lumen
Of all the souls that stand create
Of Being is a Bird (653)
Of Bronze—and Blaze
Of Brussels—it was not
Of Consciousness, her awful Mate
Of Course—I prayed (376)
Of nearness to her sundered Things
Of Silken Speech and Specious Shoe (896)
Of Tolling Bell I ask the cause? (947)
Of Tribulation, these are They
On a Columnar Self
On such a night, or such a night
On that dear Frame the Years had worn (940)
On The Bleakness Of My Lot
On this long storm the Rainbow rose
On this wondrous sea
Once more, my now bewildered Dove (48)
One and One—are One (769)
One Anguish—in a Crowd
One Blessing had I than the rest
One Crucifixion is recorded—only
One day is there of the series
One dignity delays for all
One Life of so much Consequence!
One need not be a chamber to be haunted
One Sister have I in our house (14)
One Year ago—jots what?
Only a Shrine, but Mine
Only God—detect the Sorrow
Our journey had advanced
Our little Kinsmen—after Rain
Our lives are Swiss
Our share of night to bear (113)
Out of sight? What of that?
Over and over, like a Tune (367)
Over the fence
Pain Has An Element
Pain has an element of Blank (650)
Pain—expands the Time
Papa above!
Partake as doth the Bee (994)
Parting
Patience—has a quiet Outer
Peace is a fiction of our Faith
Perhaps I Asked Too Large
Perhaps you think me stooping
Perhaps you'd like to buy a flower (134)
Philosophy
Pigmy seraphs—gone astray
Playmates
Pompless No Life Can Pass Away
Poor little Heart!
Poor Little Heart!
Portraits are to daily faces
Power
Prayer is the little implement (437)
Presentiment is that long shadow on the lawn
Proof
Psalm of the Day
Publication—is the Auction
Purple—is fashionable twice
Put up my lute!
Read—Sweet—how others—strove
Real
Real Riches
Refuge
Rehearsal to Ourselves (379)
Remembrance
Remorse
Removed from Accident of Loss (424)
Renunciation
Requiem
Rest at Night
Resurection
Resurgam
Resurrection
Reticence
Reverse cannot befall (395)
Ribbons of the Year
Robbed by Death—but that was easy
Rouge Et Noir
Rouge Gagne
Safe in their Alabaster Chambers (216)
Sanctuary Privileges
Satisfied
Saturday Afternoon
Savior! I've no one else to tell
Savior! I've no one else to tell (217)
Setting Sail
Sexton! My Master's sleeping here
Sexton! My Master's sleeping here (96)
She bore it till the simple veins
She dealt her pretty words like Blades (479)
She died at play
She died—this was the way she died
She dwelleth in the Ground (671)
She hideth Her the last
She lay as if at play
She rose to his requirement, dropped
She slept beneath a tree
She sped as Petals of a Rose (991)
She staked her Feathers—Gained an Arc (798)
She sweeps with many-colored brooms
She went as quiet as the Dew
She's happy, with a new Content (535)
Shells from the Coast mistaking (693)
Should you but fail at—Sea
Sic transit gloria mundi
Size circumscribes—it has no room (641)
Sleep is supposed to be
Sleep Is Supposed to Be
Smiling back from Coronation
Snake
Snow beneath whose chilly softness
Snow flakes
So bashful when I spied her! (91)
So from the mould
So glad we are—a Stranger'd deem
So glad we are—a Stranger'd deem (329)
So has a Daisy vanished
So much Summer
So proud she was to die
So set its Sun in Thee
So the Eyes accost—and sunder (752)
So well that I can live without (456)
Soil of Flint, if steady tilled
Some Keep the Sabbath Going to Church
Some such Butterfly be seen (541)
Some things that fly there be
Some, too fragile for winter winds
Some—Work for Immortality (406)
Song
Soto! Explore thyself! (832)
Soul, Wilt thou toss again? (139)
South Wind — has a pathos
South Winds jostle them
Sown in dishonor
Speech'—is a prank of Parliament (688)
Split the Lark—and you'll find the Music (861)
Spring is the Period (844)
Storm
Strong Draughts of Their Refreshing Minds (711)
Struck, was I, not yet by Lightning
Success
Success is counted Sweetest
Such is the Force of Happiness
Summer for thee, grant I may be
Summer Shower
Summer's Armies
Sunset
Sunset at Night—is natural (415)
Superfluous were the Sun (999)
Superiority To Fate
Surgeons must be very careful
Surrender
Suspense
Suspense—is Hostiler than Death (705)
Sweet Hours Have Perished Here
Sweet Mountains—Ye tell Me no lie
Sweet, to have had them lost (901)
Sweet—You forgot—but I remembered (523)
T Was Later When The Summer Went
T'is So Much Joy
Take your Heaven further on (388)
Talk with prudence to a Beggar
Teach Him—When He makes the names
Tell All the Truth, But Tell it Slant
Thanksgiving Day
That after Horror—that 'twas us
That Distance was between Us
That first Day, when you praised Me, Sweet
That I did always love
That is solemn we have ended
That Such Have Died Enables Us
The Admirations—and Contempts—of time
The Balloon
The Bat
The Battle fought between the Soul
The Bee
The Bee is not afraid
The Bee is not afraid of me (111)
The Bible Is An Antique Volume
The Bird must sing to earn the Crumb
The Birds begun at Four o'clock
The Black Berry—wears a Thorn in his side
The Blue Jay
The Body grows without (578)
The Bone That Has No Marrow
The Book Of Martyrs
The Brain
The Brain – is wider than the Sky –
The Brain, within its Groove (556)
The Bustle in a House
The Bustle In The House
The butterfly's assumption-gown
The Chariot
The Chariot
The Chemical conviction
The Child's faith is new
The Color of a Queen, is this (776)
The Coming Of Night
The Court is far away
The cricket sang
The Daisy follows soft the Sun
The day came slow, till five o' clock
The Day undressed—Herself
The Definition of Beauty is (988)
The difference between Despair (305)
The Distance That The Dead Have Gone
The Ditch is dear to the Drunken man (Fr1679)
The Doomed—regard the Sunrise
The Drop, that wrestles in the Sea
The Dust behind I strove to join (992)
The dying need but little, dear
The face I carry with me—last
The Farthest Thunder That I Heard
The first Day that I was a Life
The First Lesson
The Flower must not blame the Bee
The Funeral
The Future—never spoke (672)
The Gentian weaves her fringes
The good Will of a Flower
The Grace—Myself—might not obtain (707)
The Grass
The Grave My Little Cottage Is
The Guest is gold and crimson
The hallowing of Pain
The Heart asks Pleasure - first - (536)
The Heart has Narrow Banks
The Heaven vests for Each
The Himmaleh was known to stoop
The Hollows round His eager Eyes (955)
The Inevitable
The Judge is like the Owl (699)
The Juggler's Hat her Country is
The Juggler's Hat her Country is (330)
The Lady feeds Her little Bird (941)
The Lamp burns sure—within
The Leaves like Women interchange (987)
The Lightning playeth—all the while
The Loneliness One dare not sound
The lonesome for they know not What
The Lost Thought
The Love a Life can show Below
The Luxury to apprehend
The Manner of its Death (468)
The Martyr Poets—did not tell
The Master
The Missing All—prevented Me (985)
The Months have ends—the Years—a knot
The Monument
The Moon
The Moon Is Distant From The Sea
The Moon was but a Chin of Gold
The morns are meeker than they were
The Mountain sat upon the Plain
The Mountains—grow unnoticed
The Murmur of a Bee (155)
The Mushroom
The Mystery of Pain
The name—of it—is
The name—of it—is "Autumn" (656)
The nearest Dream recedes—unrealized
The Night was wide, and furnished scant
The One who could repeat the Summer day
The Only News I know
The Oriole
The Outer—from the Inner
The Outlet (162)
The Past
The pedigree of honey
The Poets light but Lamps
The power to be true to You (464)
The Preacher
The Props assist the House
The Province of the Saved (539)
The Purple Clover
The Railway Train
The rainbow never tells me
The Rat
The Red—Blaze—is the Morning (469)
The Robin for the Crumb
The Robin is the One
The Robin's my Criterion for Tune
The Rose did caper on her cheek
The Savior must have been a docile Gentleman (1487)
The Sea Of Sunset
The Secret
The Service without Hope
The show is not the show
The sky is low, the clouds are mean
The Soul selects her own Society (303)
The Soul Should Always Stand Ajar
The Soul that hath a Guest (674)
The Soul unto itself (683)
The Soul's distinct connection
The Soul's distinct connection (974)
The Soul's Superior instants (306)
The Spider
The Spider holds a Silver Ball
The Spirit is the Conscious Ear
The Stimulus, Beyond The Grave
The Sun and Moon must make their haste (871)
The Sun is gay or stark
The Sun kept stooping—stooping
The Sunrise runs for Both
The Sunset stopped on Cottages
The Sun—just touched the Morning
The sweetest Heresy received
The Test of Love—is Death (573)
The thought beneath so slight a film
The Trees like Tassels—hit—and swung
The Truth—is stirless (780)
The Tulip
The Veins of other Flowers
The Waking Year
The Whole of it came not at once
The Wife
The Wind
The Wind (Version 2)
The wind begun to rock the grass
The Winters are so short
The Woodpecker
The World Feels Dusty
The World—feels Dusty
The World—stands—solemner—to me
The Zeroes—taught us—Phosphorous (689)
There are two Ripenings—one—of sight
There Came a Wind Like a Bugle
There is a finished feeling
There is a June when Corn is cut
There is a Languor of the Life
There is a morn by men unseen
There is a pain — so utter
There is a Shame of Nobleness (551)
There is a solitude of space
There is a word
There is an arid Pleasure
There is another sky
There is no frigate like a book (1263)
There's a certain Slant of light
There's something quieter than sleep
These Strangers, in a foreign world
These Strangers, in a foreign World
These tested Our Horizon
They ask but our Delight
They called me to the Window, for
They dropped like flakes
They have a little Odor—that to me
They have not chosen me, he said
They leave us with the Infinite (350)
They put Us far apart
They say that "Time assuages"—
They Shut Me Up in Prose
They won't frown always—some sweet Day
They won't frown always—some sweet Day (874)
Thirst
This Bauble was preferred of Bees
This Chasm, Sweet, upon my life
This Consciousness that is aware (822)
This Dust, and its Feature (936)
This heart that broke so long
This is a Blossom of the Brain
This is My Letter to the World
This Is My Letter to the World
This is the land the sunset washes
This Merit hath the worst (979)
This Quiet Dust was Gentlemen and Ladies
This that would greet—an hour ago
This was a Poet—It is That
This was in the White of the Year (995)
This World is not Conclusion
Tho' I get home how late—how late
Tho' my destiny be Fustian
Those who have been in the Grave the longest
Three times—we parted—Breath—and I
Three Weeks Passed Since I Had Seen Her
Through lane it lay—through bramble
Through the Dark Sod—as Education
Through the strait pass of suffering (792)
Till Death—is narrow Loving
Time feels so vast that were it not (802)
Time's Lesson
Tis Anguish grander than Delight (984)
Tis good—the looking back on Grief (660)
Tis little I—could care for Pearls (466)
Tis Opposites—entice (355)
Tis true—They shut me in the Cold (538)
Title divine—is mine!
To be alive—is Power (677)
To die—takes just a little while
To fight aloud, is very brave (126)
To fill a Gap (546)
To hang our head—ostensibly
To hear an Oriole sing
To Help Our Bleaker Parts
To interrupt His Yellow Plan
To know just how He suffered—would be dear
To learn the Transport by the Pain
To lose one's faith—surpass
To lose one's faith—surpass (377)
To Lose Thee, Sweeter Than To Gain
To love thee Year by Year
To make a prairie (1755)
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee
To make One's Toilette—after Death (485)
To my quick ear the leaves conferred
To my small Hearth His fire came (638)
To My Wife
To offer brave assistance (767)
To One denied the drink (490)
To own the Art within the Soul
To put this World down, like a Bundle
To see her is a Picture
To see the summer sky (1471)
To this World she returned
To venerate the simple days
To wait an Hour—is long (781)
Too Few the Mornings Be
Too Late
Too little way the House must lie
Transplanted
Träumerei
Triumph—may be of several kinds (455)
Troubled About Many Things
Trust in the Unexpected
Truth — is as old as God
Twas Love—not me (394)
Twas such a little—little boat
