Go back to I held a Jewel in my fingers--

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
I held a Jewel in my fingers--

I held a Jewel in my fingers --
And went to sleep --
The day was warm, and winds were prosy --
I said "'Twill keep" --

I woke -- and chid my honest fingers,
The Gem was gone --
And now, an Amethyst remembrance
Is all I own --

(#245)
