The Props assist the House, until the House is Built

Boy's room
And then the Props withdraw
And adequate, erect,
The House supports itself
And will cease to recollect
The Augur and the Carpenter –
Just such a retrospect
Hath the perfected Life –
A Past of Plank and Nail
And slowness – then the rigging drops
Affirming it a Soul –
Emily Dickinson
