How noteless Men, and Pleiads, stand,
Until a sudden sky
Reveals the fact that One is rapt -
Forever from the Eye -
Members of the Invisible,
Existing, while we stare,
In Leagueless Opportunity,
O'ertakeless, as the Air -
Why didn't we detain Them?
The Heavens with a smile,
Sweep by our disappointed Heads
Without a syllable -
Emily Dickinson,in «dark matter poems of space»,
