How noteless Men, and Pleiads, stand

How noteless Men, and Pleiads, stand

How noteless Men, and Pleiads, stand,
Until a sudden sky
Reveals the fact that One is rapt
Forever from the Eye

Members of the Invisible,
Existing, while we stare,
In Leagueless Opportunity,
O’ertakenless, as the Air

Why didn’t we detain Them?
The Heavens with a smile,
Sweep by our disappointed Heads
Without a syllable



Poem How noteless Men, and Pleiads, stand - Emily Dickinson
