Go back to Conscious am I in my Chamber,

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
Conscious am I in my Chamber,

Conscious am I in my Chamber,
Of a shapeless friend --
He doth not attest by Posture --
Nor Confirm -- by Word --

Neither Place -- need I present Him --
Fitter Courtesy
Hospitable intuition
Of His Company --

Presence -- is His furthest license --
Neither He to Me
Nor Myself to Him -- by Accent --
Forfeit Probity --

Weariness of Him, were quainter
Than Monotony
Knew a Particle -- of Space's
Vast Society

Neither if He visit Other --
Do He dwell -- or Nay -- know I --
But Instinct esteem Him
Immortality --
