Emily Dickinson

He Preached Upon ‘Breadth’ Till It Argued Him Narrow

He preached upon ‘Breadth’ till it argued him narrow – The Broad are too broad to define And of ‘Truth’ until it proclaimed him a Liar – The Truth never flaunted a Sign – Simplicity fled from his counterfeit presence As Gold the Pyrites would shun – What confusion would cover the innocent Jesus To meet so enabled a Man!
