Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B73
Write, Comrade, write!

On this wondrous sea
Sailing silently,
Ho! Pilot, ho!
Knowest thou the shore
Where no breakers roar -
Where the storm is oer?

In the peaceful west
Many the sails at rest -
The anchors fast -
Thither I pilot thee   
Land Ho! Eternity!
Ashore at last!


H B73
