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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

CXVII


SO proud she was to die
  It made us all ashamed
That what we cherished, so unknown
  To her desire seemed.
  
So satisfied to go        5
  Where none of us should be,
Immediately, that anguish stooped
  Almost to jealousy.
