I felt a Funeral, in my Brain.
The Soul selects her own Society—
After great pain, a formal feeling comes—
Much Madness is divinest Sense—
This is my letter to the World I tie my Hat—I crease my Shawl—
I heard a Fly buzz—when I died—
Her sweet Weight on my Heart a Night I reckon—when I count at all—
They shut me up in Prose—
“Nature” is what we see—
Publication—is the Auction Because I could not stop for Death—
My Life had stood—a Loaded Gun—
Nature—the Gentlest Mother is Color—Caste—Denomination—
A narrow Fellow in the Grass Tell all the Truth but tell it slant—
The Stars are old, that stood for me—
The Bible is an antique Volume—
There came a Wind like a Bugle—
