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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

III


DEPARTED to the judgment,
A mighty afternoon;
Great clouds like ushers leaning,
Creation looking on.
  
The flesh surrendered, cancelled,        5
The bodiless begun;
Two worlds, like audiences, disperse
And leave the soul alone.
