"If Tolling Bell I Ask the Cause" by Emily Dickinson

If Tolling Bell I Ask the Cause
by Emily Dickinson

If tolling bell I ask the cause.
“A soul has gone to God,”
I’m answered in a lonesome tone;
Is heaven then so sad?

That bells should joyful ring to tell
A soul had gone to heaven,
Would seem to me the proper way
A good news should be given.
