Emily Dickinson - This was in the White of the Year --

This was in the White of the Year --
That -- was in the Green --
Drifts were as difficult then to think
As Daisies now to be seen --

Looking back is best that is left
Or if it be -- before --
Retrospection is Prospect's half,
Sometimes, almost more.

A difficult poem and one open to very personal interpretations. A friend used it on a memorial card after his sister's tragic death.
