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 of narrow Hands
To gather Paradise

~Emily Dickinson~
