Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.
Part Four: Time and Eternity XI
HOW many times these low feet staggered,
Only the soldered mouth can tell;
Try! can you stir the awful rivet?
Try! can you lift the hasps of steel?
  
Stroke the cool forehead, hot so often,        5
Lift, if you can, the listless hair;
Handle the adamantine fingers
Never a thimble more shall wear.
  
Buzz the dull flies on the chamber window;
Brave shines the sun through the freckled pane;        10
Fearless the cobweb swings from the ceiling—
Indolent housewife, in daisies lain!
