Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B162
You must let me 
go first, Sue, because 
I live in the Sea 
always and know 
the Road.
I would have drowned 
twice to save 
you sinking, dear, 
If I could only 
have covered your 
Eyes so you would'nt 
have seen the Water.


H B162
