Emily Dickinson, 1830 - 1886

de bene esse: literally, of well-being, morally acceptable but subject to future validation or exception

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 labour, and my leisure too, For his civility.


Reclusive American poet. Unrecognized in her own time, Dickinson is known posthumously for her unusual use of form and syntax. biography
