A Thought Went Up My Mind To-Day By Emily Elizabeth Dickinson

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 my soul, I know
    I ‘ve met the thing before;
    It just reminded me — ‘t was all —
    And came my way no more.
