The Hallowing Of Pain - Poem by Emily Dickinson

772

The hallowing of Pain
Like hallowing of Heaven,
Obtains at a corporeal cost—
The Summit is not given

To Him who strives severe
At middle of the Hill—
But He who has achieved the Top—
All—is the price of All—

    But He who has achieved the Top—
