One Life Of So Much Consequence! - Poem by Emily Dickinson
One Life of so much Consequence!
Yet I—for it—would pay—
My Soul's entire income—
One Pearl—to me—so signal—
That I would instant dive—
Although—I knew—to take it—
Would cost me—just a life!
The Sea is full—I know it!
That—does not blur my Gem!
It burns—distinct from all the row—
The life is thick—I know it!
Yet—not so dense a crowd—
But Monarchs—are perceptible—
Far down the dustiest Road!
