223/366 The door as sudden shut

Taking a walk in the neighborhood at night brought this image-

A door just opened on a street–
I, lost, was passing by–
An instant’s width of warmth disclosed
And wealth, and company.

The door as sudden shut, and I,
I, lost, was passing by,–
Lost doubly, but by contrast most,
Enlightening misery. 

—#111, A door just opened on a street

For today: The door as sudden shut

  1. Wow, that’s powerful. Emily knew how to go for the gut. Quite an image of exclusion, the warmth within denied to the lonely passerby.
