Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Four: Time and Eternity

LXXVIII


A THROE upon the features
A hurry in the breath,
An ecstasy of parting
Denominated “Death”,—
  
An anguish at the mention,        5
Which, when to patience grown,
I ’ve known permission given
To rejoin its own.
