Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 360a
Tis  not  the 
swaying  frame 
we  miss '
It  is  the 
steadfast  Heart,
H 360b

That  had  it 
beat  a  thousand 
With  Love  alone 
had  bent,
It's  fervor  the 
Electric  Oar,
That  bore  it 
through  the  Tomb,
Ourselves,  denied 
the  privilege,

H 360
