Emily Dickinson, 973

 
De Dea - Hy is in Twapetear
Tusken de Geast en ’t Stof.
“Los op” seit Dea,
De Geast “Mynhear
Ik folgje in oare Rop” -

Dea wol ’t net oan -
Hy redendielt -
Dolt djip - De Geast draait wei
Leit inkeld ôf noch ta bewiis
In Boppekleed fan Klaai.

 

Death is a Dialogue between
The Spirit and the Dust.
“Dissolve” says Death -
The Spirit “Sir
I have another Trust” -

Death doubts it -
Argues from the Ground -
The Spirit turns away
Just laying off for evidence
An Overcoat of Clay.

 

F973 (J976)
