I dwell in Possibility — (poem 657)
by Emily Dickinson


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 —
