Farewell (Poem by Emily Dickinson)

Emily Dickinson

Farewell
By Emily Dickinson


Tie the strings to my life, my Lord,
    Then I am ready to go!
Just a look at the horses — 
    Rapid! That will do!

Put me in on the firmest side,
    So I shall never fall;
For we must ride to the Judgment,
    And it's partly down hill.

    And never I mind the sea;
Held fast in everlasting race
    By my own choice and thee.

Good-by to the life I used to live,
    And the world I used to know;
And kiss the hills for me, just once;
    Now I am ready to go!
