The House Without the Door

Doom is the House without the Door – 
'Tis entered from the Sun – 
And then the Ladder's thrown away,
Because Escape – is done – 


'Tis varied by the Dream
Of what they do outside – 
Where Squirrels play – and Berries die – 
And Hemlocks – bow – to God – 


–Emily Dickinson
