Emily Dickinson

Behind Me Dips Eternity

poem 721

Behind Me dips Eternity Before Me Immortality Myself the Term between Death but the Drift of Eastern Gray, Dissolving into Dawn away, Before the West begin ‘Tis Kingdoms afterward they say In perfect pauseless Monarchy Whose Prince is Son of None Himself His Dateless Dynasty Himself Himself diversify In Duplicate divine ‘Tis Miracle before Me then ‘Tis Miracle behind between A Crescent in the Sea With Midnight to the North of Her And Midnight to the South of Her And Maelstrom in the Sky
