The Unknown Dead --
Ode / Henry Timrod --
49 I never lost as much but twice --
67 Success is counted sweetest --
76 Exultation is the going --
80 Our lives are Swiss --
126 To fight aloud, is very brave --
128 Bring me the sunset in a cup --
130 These are the days when birds come back --
160 Just lost, when I was saved --
165 A wounded deer, leaps highest --
187 How many times these low feet staggered --
214 I taste a liquor never brewed --
216 Safe in their alabaster chambers --
241 I like a look of agony --
249 Wild nights-wild nights --
258 There's a certain slant of light --
280 I felt a funeral, in my brain --
287 A clock stopped --
290 Of bronze-and blaze --
303 The soul selects her own society --
318 I'll tell you how the sun rose --
322 There came a day at summer's full --
328 A bird came down the walk --
341 After great pain, a formal feeling comes --
348 I dreaded that first robin, so --
376 Of course-I prayed --
378 I saw no way-the Heavens were stitched --
401 What soft-cherubic creatures --
435 Much madness is divinest sense / Emily Dickinson. 441 This is my letter to the world --
448 This was a poet, it is that --
449 I died for beauty-but was scarce --
465 I heard a fly buzz-when I died --
474 They put us far apart --
502 At least-to pray-is left-is left --
511 If you were coming in the fall --
526 To hear an oriole sing --
536 The heart asks pleasure-first --
556 The brain, within it's groove --
585 I like to see it lap the miles --
620 It makes no difference abroad --
640 I cannot live with you --
650 Pain-has an element of blank --
657 I dwell in possibility --
664 Of all the souls that stand create --
675 Essential oils-are wrung --
712 Because I could not stop for death --
721 Behind me-dips eternity --
742 Four trees-upon a solitary acre --
754 My life had stood-a loaded gun --
764 Presentiment-is that long shadow-on the lawn --
813 This quiet dust was gentlemen and ladies --
822 This consciousness that is aware --
829 Ample make this bed --
861 Split the lark-and you'll find the music --
870 Finding is the first act --
875 I stepped from plank to plank --
888 When I have seen the sun emerge --
946 It is an honorable thought --
949 Under the light, yet under --
985 The missing all, prevented me --
986 A narrow fellow in the grass --
997 Crumbling is not an instant's act --
1052 I never saw a moor --
1068 Further in summer than the birds --
1072 Title divine-is mine --
1078 The bustle in a house --
1082 Revolution is the pod --
1084 At half past three, a single bird --
1129 Tell all the truth but tell it slant --
1176 We never know how high we are --
1207 He preached upon "Breadth" till it argued him narrow --
1243 Safe despair it is that raves --
1304 Not with a club, the heart is broken --
1333 A little madness in the spring --
1393 Lay this laurel on the one --
1463 A route of evanescence --
1540 As imperceptibly as grief --
1587 He ate and drank the precious words --
1612 The auctioneer of parting --
1624 Apparently with no surprise --
1670 In winter in my room --
1672 Lightly stepped a yellow star --
1695 There is a solitude of space --
1712 A pit-but Heaven over it --
