Emily Dickinson - Not probable -- The barest Chance

Not probable -- The barest Chance --
A smile too few -- a word too much
And far from Heaven as the Rest --
The Soul so close on Paradise --

What if the Bird from journey far --
Confused by Sweets -- as Mortals -- are --
Forget the secret of His wing
And perish -- but a Bough between --
Oh, Groping feet --
Oh Phantom Queen!

I may miss heaven because sometimes I am like a bird after a long journey that is distracted by something and forgets to grasp the branch and falls.
