Emily Dickinson

I Had No Cause To Be Awake

poem 542

I had no Cause to be awake My Best was gone to sleep And Morn a new politeness took And failed to wake them up But called the others clear And passed their Curtains by Sweet Morning when I oversleep Knock Recollect to Me I looked at Sunrise Once And then I looked at Them And wishfulness in me arose For Circumstance the same ‘Twas such an Ample Peace It could not hold a Sigh ‘Twas Sabbath with the Bells divorced ‘Twas Sunset all the Day So choosing but a Gown And taking but a Prayer The only Raiment I should need I struggled and was There
