Because I could not stop for death
Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
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 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 grew quivering and chill,
For only gossamer my gown,
My tippet only tulle.
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 yet
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were towards eternity.
