Wild nights!--wild nights! (249)

Original Text: 
The Manuscript Books of Emily Dickinson, edited by R. W. Franklin in volumes (Cambridge, Mass., and London: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1981; PS 1541 A1 1981 ROBA): I, 222.
1Wild nights--wild nights!
2Were I with thee
3Wild nights should be
4Our luxury!
5Futile the winds
6To a heart in port--
7Done with the compass,
8Done with the chart!
9Rowing in Eden--
10Ah, the sea!
12In thee!
