    The Soul Selects Her Own Society
    by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

    The Soul selects her own Society —
    Then — shuts the Door —
    To her divine Majority —
    Present no more —

    Unmoved — she notes the Chariots — pausing —
    At her low Gate —
    Unmoved — an Emperor be kneeling
    Upon her Mat —

    I've known her — from an ample nation —
    Choose One —
    Then — close the Valves of her attention —
    Like Stone —
