Emily Dickinson - It struck me -- every Day

It struck me -- every Day --
The Lightning was as new
As if the Cloud that instant slit
And let the Fire through --

It burned Me -- in the Night --
It Blistered to My Dream --
It sickened fresh upon my sight --
With every Morn that came --

I though that Storm -- was brief --
The Maddest -- quickest by --
But Nature lost the Date of This --
And left it in the Sky --

The author speaks of grieving the loss of a close and dear friend. A loss that was sudden and still seethes within her soul. Every day she looks for them, every day she is disappointed to find they are not there.
