Emily Dickinson - Good night, because we must,

Good night, because we must,
How intricate the dust!
I would go, to know!
Oh incognito!
Saucy, Saucy Seraph
To elude me so!
Father! they won't tell me,
Won't you tell them to?

Death will bring a new world--I really want to know what it will be like.

Brilliant poem! I like how she adresses God as if she and Death were siblings and Death was teasing her so she went to complain to her Father.
