2- and when they all... Going numb

And when they all were seated,
A Service, like a Drum -
Kept beating - beating - till I thought
My mind was going numb -

3- and then I heard them lift... Began to toll


And then I heard them lift a Box
And creak across my Soul
With those same Boots of Lead, again,
Then Space - began to toll,

4- as all the Heavens...here-

As all the Heavens were a Bell,
And Being, but an Ear,
And I, and Silence, some strange Race,
Wrecked, solitary, here -

5 - and then a Plank in Reason... -then-

And then a Plank in Reason, broke,
And I dropped down, and down -
And hit a World, at every plunge,
And Finished knowing - then -
