by Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)

The grave my little cottage is
Language: English 
Available translation(s): GER
The grave my little cottage is,
Where keeping house for thee,
I make my parlor orderly
And lay the marble tea
For two divided briefly,
A cycle it may be,
Till everlasting life unite
In strong society.
