This Me — that walks and works — must die,

This Me — that walks and works — must die, by Emily Dickinson
1588

This Me — that walks and works — must die,
Some fair or stormy Day,
Adversity if it may be
Or wild prosperity
The Rumor's Gate was shut so tight
Before my mind was born
Not even a Prognostic's push
Can make a Dent thereon —
