I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows
Superior – for Doors –

Of Chambers as the Cedars
Impregnable of Eye –
And for an Everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky –

Of Visitors – the fairest –
For Occupation- This –
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –

Emily Dickinson, c. 1862
