our journey had advanced

 

Our journey had advanced-
Our feet were almost come
To that odd Fork in Being’s road-
Eternity-by Term-

Our pace took sudden awe-
Our feet-reluctant-led-
Before-were cities-but Between-
The Forest of the Dead-

Retreat-was out of Hope-
Behind-a Sealed Route-
Eternity’s White Flag-Before-
And God-at every Gate-

~ Emily Dickinson
