  • "Because I could not stop for Death" by Emily Dickinson

  • Because I could not stop for DeathHe kindly stopped for me

  • The Carriage held but just OurselvesAnd Immortality.

  • We slowly droveHe knew no haste And I had put away

  • My labor and my leisure too, For His Civility

  • We passed the School, where Children strove

  • At Recessin the RingWe passed the Fields of Gazing Grain

  • We passed the Setting Sun

  • Or ratherHe passed UsThe Dews drew quivering and Chill

  • For only Gossamer, my GownMy Tippetonly Tulle

  • We paused before a House that seemed A Swelling of the Ground

  • The Roof was scarcely visibleThe Cornicein the Ground

  • Since then – 'tis Centuriesand yet Feels shorter than the Day

  • I first surmised the Horses' Heads Were toward Eternity
