Emily Dickinson - 'Twas comfort in her Dying Room

'Twas comfort in her Dying Room
To hear the living Clock --
A short relief to have the wind
Walk boldly up and knock --
Diversion from the Dying Theme
To hear the children play --
But wrong the more
That these could live
And this of ours must die.

I have always loved Emily Dickinson....and I have always loved this poem for its simplicity. I mean, it makes sense to me, the comfort one would get from hearing certain sounds, yet how unfair it would seem that they can go on and yet you cannot for long.
