Emily Dickinson (10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)
They say that 'time assuages,
They say that 'time assuages,'--
Time never did assuage;
An actual suffering strengthens,
As sinews do, with age.
Time is a test of trouble,
But not a remedy.
If such it prove, it prove too
There was no malady.
