The Chariot / Emily Dickinson

 

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.

We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labor, and my leisure too,
For his civility.

We passed the school, where children strove
At recess, in the ring;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.

Or rather, he passed us;
The dews grew quivering and chill,
For only gossamer my gown,
My tippet only tulle.

We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.

Since then 'tis centuries, and yet each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were toward eternity.

 

Danse macabre / Ian Emberson

Death came to me in a mini skirt
As skittish as a kitten ,
And said : " I am come - for your final flirt " ,
But added : " You don't seem smitten ".

Says I : " Well - not in my wildest whim
Did I picture you looking like this ,
I'd been told that you were a reaper grim
And behold - a saucy miss ".

" Ah - many a one is like yourself
Surprised by my winning smile ,
I have jokes and jests like a playful elf
And I know the way to beguile ".

" But - please just pass me by with a nod
I've poems and plays unwritten ,
There are footpaths I have never trod
As you say - I'm not much smitten ".

" Oh hush my darling - and don't repine ",
And she gave a gracious prance ,
Then she twined her fingers into mine
And whispered : " Shall we dance ? "
