Heart! We Will Forget Him! - Poem by Emily Dickinson

47

Heart! We will forget him!
You and I—tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave—
I will forget the light!

When you have done, pray tell me
That I may straight begin!
Haste! lest while you're lagging
I remember him!

    some of the words are wrong or missing. this is the accurate version of the poem:

    Heart, we will forget him!
    You and I, tonight!
    You may forget the warmth he gave,
    I will forget the light.

    When you have done, pray tell me,
    That I my thoughts may dim;
    Haste! lest while you're lagging,
    I may remember him!
