Poem by Emily Elizabeth Dickinson


Resurrection


T was a long parting, but the time
For interview had come;
Before the judgment-seat of God,
The last and second time

These fleshless lovers met,
A heaven in a gaze,
A heaven of heavens, the privilege
Of one anothers eyes.

No lifetime set on them,
Apparelled as the new
Unborn, except they had beheld,
Born everlasting now.

Was bridal eer like this?
A paradise, the host,
And cherubim and seraphim
The most familiar guest.
