• If I should die
• I’m wife; I’ve finished that, • I felt a funeral in my brain
• Wild nights! Wild nights • There’s a certain slant of light
• The soul selects her own society • I died for beauty, but was scarce
• “Going to him! Happy letter! Tell him— • I heard a fly buzz when I died
• She rose to his requirement, dropped • It was not death, for I stood up
• My worthiness is all my doubt • Because I could not stop for Death
