+)Because I Could Not Stop For Death(+

Because I Could Not Stop For Death By Emily Dickinson

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 hast
And I had put away
My labor and my leisure too,
For His Civility
We passed the School, where Children strove
At Recess, in the Ring,
We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain
We passed the Setting Sun
Or rather , He passed Us
The Dews drew quivering and chill
For only Gossamer, my Gown,
My Tipped , only Tulle
We paused before a House that seemed
A Swelling of the Ground
The Roof was scarcely visible
The Cornice, in the Ground
Since then, 'tis Centuries and yet
Feels shorter than the Day
I first surmised the Horses' Heads
Were towards Eternity
