  • I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,⁣
And Mourners to and fro⁣
Kept treading - treading - till it seemed⁣
That Sense was breaking through -⁣
⁣
And when they all were seated,⁣
A Service, like a Drum -⁣
Kept beating - beating - till I thought⁣
My mind was going numb -⁣
⁣
And then I heard them lift a Box⁣
And creak across my Soul⁣
With those same Boots of Lead, again,⁣
Then Space - began to toll,⁣
⁣
As all the Heavens were a Bell,⁣
And Being, but an Ear,⁣
And I, and Silence, some strange Race,⁣
Wrecked, solitary, here -⁣
⁣
And then a Plank in Reason, broke,⁣
And I dropped down, and down -⁣
And hit a World, at every plunge,⁣
And Finished knowing - then -⁣
⁣
~ Emily Dickinson
