From Emily Dickinson,  "After great pain "

This is the hour of lead -
Remembered, if outlived,
As freezing persons, recollect the snow-
First - Chill - then Stupor - then the letting go -

OK -- I 'll see your EMily Dickinson (brilliant, BTW) and raise you:

And then a glimpse of light,
Faint sliver in the night,
And the first seep, seep of a slow sure thaw;
And a faint, furious, swell in the warm blood below.

Big hugs
