Marriage & Relationship

Because I could not stop for Death –
He kindly stopped for me –
The Carriage held but just Ourselves –
And Immortality.

We slowly drove – He knew no haste
And I had put away
My labor and my leisure too,
For His Civility –

We passed the School, where Children strove
At Recess – in the Ring –
We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain –
We passed the Setting Sun –

Or rather – He passed Us –
The Dews drew quivering and Chill –
For only Gossamer, my Gown –
My Tippet – only Tulle –

We paused before a House that seemed
A Swelling of the Ground –
The Roof was scarcely visible
The Cornice – in the Ground –

Since then – ’tis Centuries – and yet
Feels shorter than the Day
I first surmised the Horses’ Heads
Were toward Eternity –

  • Emily Dickinson

This is “Because I could not stop for Death,” a poignant poem by Emily Dickinson. It explores the theme of death as a calm and inevitable journey, with the speaker personifying Death as a courteous and patient companion. The carriage ride symbolizes the passage from life to eternity, and the poem reflects Dickinson’s contemplation on the nature of mortality and the afterlife.
