Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B148a
 The  World 
hath  not 
known  her, but 
I  have  known 
her,  was  the 
sweet  Boast 
of  Jesus -
The  small  Heart 
cannot  break -
The  Ecstasy  of 
it's  penalty 
solaces  the 
large -
Emerging  from 
an  Abyss,  and 
reentering  it '
that  is  Life, 

H B148b

is  it  not, 

The  tie  between 
us  is  very 
fine,  but  a 
Hair   never 
  Lovingly '
