After Great Pain a Formal Feeling Comes
Because I could not Stop for Death
"Faith" is a fine invention
Glee! the great storm is over!
I asked for no other thing
I died for Beauty -- but was scarce
I felt a Funeral, in my Brain (280)
I heard a Fly buzz (465)
I hide myself within my flower
I started Early - Took my Dog
I taste a liquor never brewed
If I can stop one heart from breaking
I'm nobody! Who are you?
The Lost Thought
The moon is distant from the sea
'T is so much joy!
Much Madness is divinest Sense (435)
Not In Vain
Our Share of Night to Bear
Pain -- has an Element of blank (650)
Safe in their Alabaster Chambers (216)
Soul, wilt thou toss again?
Success is counted sweetest (67)
The Soul has Bandaged moments
Witchcraft Has Not A Pedigree
Within my reach!
