The reticent volcano keeps 
His never slumbering plan – 
Confided are his projects pink 
To no precarious man. 

If nature will not tell the tale 
Jehovah told to her 
Can human nature not survive 
Without a listener? 

Admonished by her buckled lips 
Let every babbler be 
The only secret people keep 
Is Immortality. 

Emily Dickinson
