Time And Eternity

Posted by destiny on January 1, 2010 in Poetry |

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,
And I had put away
My labor, and my leisure too,
For his civility.

We passed the school where children played
At wrestling in a ring;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.

We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.

Since then tis centuries; but each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses heads
Were toward eternity.
~Emily Dickinson
