A Thought Went Up by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

A thought went up my mind to-day
That I have had before,
But did not finish, - some way back,
I could not fix the year,

Nor where it went, nor why it came
The second time to me,
Nor definitely what it was,
Have I the art to say.

But somewhere in m soul, I know
I've met the thing before;
It just reminded me - t'was all -
And came my way no more.
