letters from dickinson to abigail cooper

spring 1886

It is too late to express my sorrow for my grieved friend?

Though the first moment of loss is eternity, other eternities remain.

Though the great Waters sleep,
That they are still the Deep,
We cannot doubt.

No vacilating God
Ignited this Abode
To put it out.
