The most triumphant Bird I ever knew or met
Embarked upon a twig today
And till Dominion set
I famish to behold so eminent a sight
And sang for nothing scrutable
But intimate Delight.
Retired, and resumed his transitive Estate–
To what delicious Accident
Does finest Glory fit!
– Emily Dickinson, 1894
