An Open Door

A door just opened on a street–
I, lost, was passing by–
An instant’s width of warmth disclosed
And wealth, and company.

The door as sudden shut, and I,
I, lost, was passing by,–
Lost doubly, but by contrast most,
Enlightening misery.

~Emily Dickinson

La mamma morta – Renata Scotto

Be well, and at peace,

Phil
