Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 330a
The difference between 
And Fear, is like 
the One
Between the instant 
of a Wreck
And when the 
Wreck has been.
The Mind is 
smooth - 
No Motion - Contented 
as the Eye
Upon the Forehead
H 330b

of a Bust -
That knows it 
cannot see.
