by Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)

She died, ‑ this was the way she died
Language: English 
She died, - this was the way she died;
And when her breath was done,
Took up her simple wardrobe
And started for the sun.

Her little figure at the gate
The angels must have spied,
Since I could never find her
Upon the mortal side.
