Poem Title:  I Heard A Fly Buzz When I Died

Poem Category:  Remembrance Poems

Poet:  Emily Dickinson

Poet Biography: 
Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was an American lyrical poet. Strangely, due to her extreme views on her own privacy, only seven of her approx. 1800 poems were published during her lifetime.



Poem: 
I heard a fly buzz when I died;
The stillness round my form
Was like the stillness in the air
Between the heaves of storm.

The eyes beside had wrung them dry,
And breaths were gathering sure
For that last onset, when the king
Be witnessed in his power.

I willed my keepsakes, signed away
What portion of me I
Could make assignable, and then
There interposed a fly,

With blue, uncertain, stumbling buzz,
Between the light and me;
And then the windows failed, and then
I could not see to see.
