    992: The Dust behind


    The Dust behind I strove to join 
    Unto the Disk before – 
    But Sequence raveled out of Sound 
    Like Balls upon a Floor –

    c. 1865                                                    1955

    by Emily Dickinson
    from The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson
