Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

The Body grows without


578

The Body grows without—
The more convenient way—
That if the Spirit—like to hide
Its Temple stands, alway,

Ajar—secure—inviting&md ash;
It never did betray
The Soul that asked its shelter
In solemn honesty
