From Blank to Blank Poem Text

By Emily Dickinson

From Blank to Blank: Text of the Poem

From Blank to Blank—

A Threadless Way

I pushed Mechanic feet—

To stop—or perish—or advance—

Alike indifferent—



If end I gained

It ends beyond

Indefinite disclosed—

I shut my eyes—and groped as well

'Twas lighter—to be Blind—
