A Door just opened on a street



Written by: Emily Dickinson

A Door just opened on a street

A Door just opened on a street --
I -- lost -- was passing by -- 

An instant's Width of Warmth disclosed -- 
And Wealth -- and Company. 

The Door as instant shut -- 
And I -- I -- lost -- was passing by -- 
Lost doubly -- but by contrast --
most -- Informing -- misery --

Your transient

~ Give me lines on glass The dawn tides And walking past Bring me feathery flashes The midnight moments And backward glances ...
