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

Part Five: The Single Hound

LXXII


FOR Death,—or rather
For the things ’t will buy,
These put away
Life’s opportunity.
The things that Death will buy        5
Are Room,—Escape
From Circumstances,
And a Name.
How gifts of Life
With Death’s gifts will compare,        10
We know not—
For the rates stop Here.
