Why this poem? An answer by artist Jenny Bevill:

Not surprisingly with Dickinson, it’s a sad story. My mom died in May after a short but intense and completely unexpected battle with cancer. I’d been trying to write thank you notes to all the people who helped us out during her illness but I just hadn’t been able to do it. I was overwhelmed with not knowing how to express my feelings. Then I read this poem and it exactly captured the feelings I was having, and I was sure many of her friends and family were having, so I decided to make a piece of art (the deadline helped) and put it on the thank you notes. So thank you for helping me solve that problem. : )
