Emma Fielding reads Emily Dickinson's My Life Closed Twice Before Its Close
My Life Closed Twice Before Its Close
by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
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.
