~~~~~

She rose to His Requirement – dropt

The Playthings of Her Life

To take the honorable Work

Of Woman, and of Wife

 ~~~~~

If ought She missed in Her new Day,

Of Amplitude, or Awe

Or first Prospective – Or the Gold

In using, wear away,

 ~~~~~

It lay unmentioned – as the Sea

Develope Pearl, and Weed

But only to Himself – be known

The Fathoms they abide

~~~~~

Poem by Emily Dickinson written in 1924

    Erg mooi getroffen. Ik zie ook triestheid in haar blik, kan ook heel goed kloppen.

    Liefs van Loes
