Part Four: Time and Eternity

  1. One dignity delays for all
  2. Delayed till she had ceased to know
  3. Departed to the judgment
  4. Safe in their alabaster chambers
  5. On this long storm the rainbow rose
  6. My cocoon tightens, colors tease
  7. Exultation is the going
  8. Look back on time with kindly eyes
  9. A train went through a burial gate
  10. I died for beauty, but was scarce
  11. How many times these low feet staggered
  12. I like a look of agony
  13. That short, potential stir
  14. I went to thank her
  15. I ’ve seen a dying eye
  16. The clouds their backs together laid
  17. I never saw a moor
  18. God permits industrious angels
  19. To know just how he suffered would be dear
  20. The last night that she lived
  21. Not in this world to see his face
  22. The bustle in a house
  23. I reason, earth is short
  24. Afraid? Of whom am I afraid?
  25. The sun kept setting, setting still
  26. Two swimmers wrestled on the spar
  27. Because I could not stop for Death
  28. She went as quiet as the dew
  29. At last to be identified!
  30. Except to heaven, she is nought
  31. Death is a dialogue between
  32. It was too late for man
  33. When I was small, a woman died
  34. The daisy follows soft the sun
  35. No rack can torture me
  36. I lost a world the other day
  37. If I should n’t be alive
  38. Sleep is supposed to be
  39. I shall know why, when time is over
  40. I never lost as much but twice
  41. Let down the bars, O Death!
  42. Going to heaven!
  43. At least to pray is left, is left
  44. Step lightly on this narrow spot!
  45. Morns like these we parted
  46. A death-blow is a life-blow to some
  47. I read my sentence steadily
  48. I have not told my garden yet
  49. They dropped like flakes, they dropped like stars
  50. The only ghost I ever saw
  51. Some, too fragile for winter winds
  52. As by the dead we love to sit
  53. Death sets a thing significant
  54. I went to heaven
  55. Their height in heaven comforts not
  56. There is a shame of nobleness
  57. A triumph may be of several kinds
  58. Pompless no life can pass away
  59. I noticed people disappeared
  60. I had no cause to be awake
  61. If anybody’s friend be dead
  62. Our journey had advanced
  63. Ample make this bed
  64. On such a night, or such a night
  65. Essential oils are wrung
  66. I lived on dread; to those who know
  67. If I should die
  68. Her final summer was it
  69. One need not be a chamber to be haunted
  70. She died,—this was the way she died
  71. Wait till the majesty of Death
  72. Went up a year this evening!
  73. Taken from men this morning
  74. What inn is this
  75. It was not death, for I stood up
  76. I should not dare to leave my friend
  77. Great streets of silence led away
  78. A throe upon the features
  79. Of tribulation these are they
  80. I think just how my shape will rise
  81. After a hundred years
  82. Lay this laurel on the one
  83. This world is not conclusion
  84. We learn in the retreating
  85. They say that ‘time assuages
  86. We cover thee, sweet face
  87. That is solemn we have ended
  88. The stimulus, beyond the grave
  89. Given in marriage unto thee
  90. That such have died enables us
  91. They won’t frown always—some sweet day
  92. T is an honorable thought
  93. The distance that the dead have gone
  94. How dare the robins sing
  95. Death is like the insect
  96. T is sunrise, little maid, hast thou
  97. Each that we lose takes part of us
  98. Not any higher stands the grave
  99. As far from pity as complaint
  100. T is whiter than an Indian pipe
  101. She laid her docile crescent down
  102. Bless God, he went as soldiers
  103. Immortal is an ample word
  104. Where every bird is bold to go
  105. The grave my little cottage is
  106. This was in the white of the year
  107. Sweet hours have perished here
  108. Me! Come! My dazzled face
  109. From use she wandered now a year
  110. I wish I knew that woman’s name
  111. Bereaved of all, I went abroad
  112. I felt a funeral in my brain
  113. I meant to find her when I came
  114. I sing to use the waiting
  115. A sickness of this world it most occasions
  116. Superfluous were the sun
  117. So proud she was to die
  118. Tie the strings to my life, my Lord
  119. The dying need but little, dear
  120. There ’s something quieter than sleep
  121. The soul should always stand ajar
  122. Three weeks passed since I had seen her
  123. I breathed enough to learn the trick
  124. I wonder if the sepulchre
  125. If tolling bell I ask the cause
  126. If I may have it when it ’s dead
  127. Before the ice is in the pools
  128. I heard a fly buzz when I died
  129. Adrift! A little boat adrift!
  130. There’s been a death in the opposite house
  131. We never know we go,—when we are going
  132. It struck me every day
  133. Water is taught by thirst
  134. We thirst at first,—’t is Nature’s act
  135. A clock stopped—not the mantel’s
  136. All overgrown by cunning moss
  137. A toad can die of light!
  138. Far from love the Heavenly Father
  139. A long, long sleep, a famous sleep
  140. T was just this time last year I died
  141. On this wondrous sea
