Before I got my eye put out
I liked as well to see—
As other Creatures, that have Eyes
And know no other way—
 
But were it told to me—Today—
That I might have the sky
For mine—I tell you that my Heart
Would split, for size of me—
 
The Meadows—mine—
The Mountains—mine—
All Forests—Stintless Stars—
As much of Noon as I could take
Between my finite eyes—
 
The Motions of the Dipping Birds—
The Morning’s Amber Road—
For mine—to look at when I liked—
The News would strike me dead—
 
So safer—guess—with just my soul
Upon the Window pane—
Where other Creatures put their eyes—
Incautious—of the Sun—
