Emily Dickinson - The Clouds their Backs together laid

The Clouds their Backs together laid
The North begun to push
The Forests galloped till they fell
The Lightning played like mice

The Thunder crumbled like a stuff
How good to be in Tombs
Where Nature's Temper cannot reach
Nor missile ever comes

Bartleby's version reads a little differently, especially that last line which is "No vengeance ever comes!"
