Undue Significance A Starving Man Attaches - Poem by Emily Dickinson

439

Undue Significance a starving man attaches
To Food—
Far off—He sighs—and therefore—Hopeless—
And therefore—Good—

Partaken&mdash ;it relieves—indeed—
But proves us
That Spices fly
In the Receipt—It was the Distance—
Was Savory—
