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

Part One: Life

LVII


EXCEPT the heaven had come so near,
So seemed to choose my door,
The distance would not haunt me so;
I had not hoped before.
  
But just to hear the grace depart        5
I never thought to see,
Afflicts me with a double loss;
’T is lost, and lost to me.
