Poem by Emily Elizabeth Dickinson


* * *


Its coming  the postponeless Creature 
It gains the Block  and now  it gains the Door 
Chooses its latch, from all the other fastenings 
Enters  with a You know Me  Sir?

Simple Salute  and certain Recognition 
Bold  were it Enemy  Brief  were it friend 
Dresses each House in Crape, and Icicle 
And carries one  out of it  to God 



Emily Elizabeth Dickinson
