Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B26
Emily  is  sorry  for 
Susan's  Day -
To  be  singular 
under  plural 
circumstances , is 
a  becoming heroism -
Opinion  is  a 
flitting  thing,
But  Truth , outlasts 
the Sun -
If  then  we  cannot 
own  them  both -
Possess  the  oldest 
One -
		   Emily '
