A Loss Of Something Ever Felt I - Poem by Emily Dickinson

959

A loss of something ever felt I—
The first that I could recollect
Bereft I was—of what I knew not
Too young that any should suspect

A Mourner walked among the children
I notwithstanding went about
As one bemoaning a Dominion
Itself the only Prince cast out—

Elder, Today, a session wiser
And fainter, too, as Wiseness is—
I find myself still softly searching
For my Delinguent Palaces—

And a Suspicion, like a Finger
Touches my Forehead now and then
That I am looking oppositely
For the site of the Kingdom of Heaven—

    Here's Part 1 [amended].... [for the 47th time]. [ PH strikes again. ] On the surface, it looks like she is talking about attending a funeral when she was a child “too young” to understand and comparing that experience to later being an and still not understanding death. (Report) Reply

    Part 3. But it might be about something else... not death but a loss of innocence perhaps... a feeling that she was deprived of what children normally have...She both seems to sadly forgive those who hurt her and then blames them for not noticing that she was suffering but then again nobody is capable of noticing the suffering of others.. A lot of repressed anger here. (Report) Reply
