Daily Dose

From The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson


THE SOUL should always stand ajar.
  That if the heaven inquire,
He will not be obliged to wait,
  Or shy of troubling her.
Depart, before the host has slid       
  The bolt upon the door,
To seek for the accomplished guest—
  Her visitor no more.
