      There came a wind like a bugle;
      It quivered through the grass,
      And a green chill upon the heat
      So ominous did pass
      We barred the windows and the doors
      As from an emerald ghost;
      The doom's electric moccasin
      That very instant passed.
      On a strange mob of panting trees,
      And fences fled away,
      And rivers where the houses ran
      Those looked that lived—that Day—
      The bell within the steeple wild
      The flying tidings whirled.
      How much can come
      And much can go,
      And yet abide the world!

      - Emily Dickinson
