Nature and God -- I neither knew

by Emily Dickinson


Original Language English

Nature and God -- I neither knew
Yet Both so well knew me
They startled, like Executors
Of My identity.

Yet Neither told -- that I could learn --
My Secret as secure
As Herschel's private interest
Or Mercury's affair --

-- from The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson, Edited by Thomas H. Johnson
