I Stepped From Plank to Plank

I stepped from Plank to Plank (poem 875)
by Emily Dickinson


I stepped from Plank to Plank
A slow and cautious way
The Stars about my Head I felt
About my Feet the Sea.


I knew not but the next
Would be my final inch —
This gave me that precarious Gait
Some call Experience.
