"Best Things dwell out of Sight"

Best Things dwell out of Sight              
 The Pearl — the Just — Our Thought.   

Most Shun the Public Air                     
Legitimate, and Rare —                        

The Capsule of the Wind                      
The Capsule of the Mind                       

  Exhibit here, as doth a Burr —             
Germ's Germ be where?                      

     —Emily Dickinson
