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

Part One: Life

XCVI


MY life closed twice before its close;
  It yet remains to see
If Immortality unveil
  A third event to me,
  
So huge, so hopeless to conceive,        5
  As these that twice befell.
Parting is all we know of heaven,
  And all we need of hell.
