Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 256
Sue - 
  Give little Anguish - 
Lives will fret - 
Give Avalanches - 
And they'll slant - 
Straighten - look cautious  
for their Breath - 
But make no syllable -  
like Death - 
Who only shows his  
Marble Disc - 
Sublimer sort - than  
Speech - 
		Emily -
