Emily Dickinson

Dying! Dying In The Night!

poem 158

Dying! Dying in the night! Won’t somebody bring the light So I can see which way to go Into the everlasting snow? And Jesus! Where is Jesus gone? They said that Jesus always came Perhaps he doesn’t know the House This way, Jesus, Let him pass! Somebody run to the great gate And see if Dollie’s coming! Wait! I hear her feet upon the stair! Death won’t hurt now Dollie’s here!
