Emily Dickinson: BECAUSE I COULD NOT STOP FOR DEATH (about 1863)

 

 

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

5

 

And I had put away

My labor and my leisure too,

For His Civility

We passed the School, where Children strove

At Recess in the Ring

10

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

15

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

20

Since then tis Centuries and yet

Feels shorter than the Day

I first surmised the Horses Heads

Were toward Eternity.
