National Poetry Month, Day 25: Emily Dickinson

[my life closed twice before its close]
by Emily Dickinson

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,
As these that twice befell.

Parting is all we know of heaven,
And all we need of hell.

A rough count tells me my life is on it's 22nd close... I suppose I'm just a lucky sod!

Thanks for the poetry, Shane.
