When One Has Given Up One’s Life – Poem by Emily Dickinson

When One Has Given Up One’s Life – Poem by Emily Dickinson

853

When One has given up One’s life
The parting with the rest
Feels easy, as when Day lets go
Entirely the West

The Peaks, that lingered last
Remain in Her regret
As scarcely as the Iodine
Upon the Cataract.
