The grave my little cottage is - Emily Dickinson

Per Emily Dickinson, life is a cycle of separation followed by everlasting love life with marble tea ....

The grave my little cottage is,
Where, keeping house for thee,
I make my parlor orderly,
And lay the marble tea,

For two divided, briefly,
A cycle, it may be,
Till everlasting life unite
In strong society.

- Emily Dickinson
