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

Part Four: Time and Eternity

LXX


SHE died,—this was the way she died;
And when her breath was done,
Took up her simple wardrobe
And started for the sun.
  
Her little figure at the gate        5
The angels must have spied,
Since I could never find her
Upon the mortal side.
