    This Was A Poet
    by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

    This was a Poet — It is That
    Distills amazing sense
    From ordinary Meanings —
    And Attar so immense

    From the familiar species
    That perished by the Door —
    We wonder it was not Ourselves
    Arrested it — before —

    Of Pictures, the Discloser —
    The Poet — it is He —
    Entitles Us — by Contrast —
    To ceaseless Poverty —

    Of portion — so unconscious —
    The Robbing — could not harm —
    Himself — to Him — a Fortune —
    Exterior — to Time —
