The Thursday Poem




My life closed twice before its close

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
(10th December 1830 - 15th May 1886)

From the book: Poem for the Day One
