Emily Dickinson

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

This heart that broke so long


145

This heart that broke so long—
These feet that never flagged—
This faith that watched for star in vain,
Give gently to the dead—

Hound cannot overtake the Hare
That fluttered panting, here—
Nor any schoolboy rob the nest
Tenderness builded there.
