'My life closed twice before its close'

by Emily Dickinson


My life closed twice before its close -
It yet remains to see
If Immortality unveil
A third event to me
So huge, so hopeless to conceive
As these that twice befell.
Parting is all we know of heaven,
And all we need of hell.
Emily Dickinson | Classic Poems

Because I could not stop for Death ] I heard a Fly buzz-when I died ] I cannot live with You ] I died for Beauty- but was scarce ] It was not Death, for I stood up ] [ My life closed twice before its close ] Success is counted sweetest ]
