Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H ST 23c
To see her is a picture
To hear [her] is a Tune
To know her an intemperance
As innocent as June
By which to be undone
Is dearer than Redemption -
Which never to receive
Makes mockery of melody
It might have been to live
