Emily Dickinson

Read sweet how Others strove

poem 260

Read Sweet how others strove Till we are stouter What they renounced Till we are less afraid How many times they bore the faithful witness Till we are helped As if a Kingdom cared! Read then of faith That shone above the fagot Clear strains of Hymn The River could not drown Brave names of Men And Celestial Women Passed out of Record Into Renown!
