"Forever - is composed of Nows"
TEXT OF COMPLETE POEM:
Forever — is composed of Nows — ‘Tis not a different time — Except for Infiniteness — And Latitude of Home —
From this — experienced Here — Remove the Dates — to These — Let Months dissolve in further Months — And Years — exhale in Years —
Without Debate — or Pause — Or Celebrated Days — No different Our Years would be From Anno Domini’s –
— from The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson, Edited by Thomas H. Johnson
