Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B62
But  Susan  is 
a  Stranger  yet -
The  Ones  who 
cite  her  most
Have  never  scaled 
her  Haunted  House
Nor  compromised 
her  Ghost -

To  pity  those  who 
know  her  not
Is  helped  by  the 
That  those  who 
know  her  know 
her  less
The  nearer  her 
they  get -
	   Emily -
