Because I could not stop for death
by: Emily Dickinson

Because I could not stop for Death –
He kindly stopped for me –
The Carriage held but just Ourselves –
And Immortality. We slowly drove –
He knew no haste
And I had put away
My labor and my leisure too,
For His Civility –
We passed the School,
where Children stroveAt Recess
– in the Ring –
We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain –
We passed the Setting Sun –
Or rather – He passed us –
The Dews drew quivering and chill –
For only Gossamer, my Gown –
My Tippet – only Tulle –
We paused before a House that seemed
A Swelling of the Ground –
The Roof was scarcely visible –
The Cornice –
in the Ground –
Since then – 'tis Centuries
– and yet
Feels shorter than the Day
I first surmised the Horses' Heads
Were toward Eternity –
My dear Emily…
For those who ain’t no see nor just hear
I see no lighten by the time they walk
For those who deny themselves for being sacrified
I see no sorrow but just a bunch of smudges
With this two hand and mind being molten
I can see your precious thought
Near or yet…I becoming your peer :-)
