The Single Hound

XVIII. There Is A Silly Goofiness

XVIII.

There is a silly Goofiness
That many die without,
Not feeling great that moment,
’Cause dying sucks a lot.

But nature sometimes, sometimes thought,
That whoso it befall
Laughs more than could be divulged
By banal folderol.

 

Dickinson’s final draft.
