Emily Dickinson – Why do they shut me out of heaven?

Why — do they shut me out of Heaven?
Did I sing — too loud?
But — I can sing a little “Minor,”
Timid as a Bird!
Wouldn’t the angels try me —
Just — once more —
Just — see — if I troubled them
But don’t — shut the door,!
Oh, if I — were the Gentlemen
In the “White Robes”
And they — were the little Hand — that knocked —
Could –I forbid?
