SHE LAY AS IF AT
Dickinson-She-Lay
EMILY DICKINSON

By Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

She lay as if at play

Her life had leaped away-

Intending to return-

But not so soon-Her merry Arms, half dropt-

As if for lull of sport-

An instant had forgot-

The Trick to start-Her dancing Eyes-ajar-

As if their Owner were

Still sparkling through

For fun-at you-Her Morning at the door-

Devising, I am sure-

To force her sleep-

So light-so deep-
