Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H ST8b
The rat is the concisest 
He pays no rent
Repudiates the obligation
On schemes intent -
Balking our wit

H ST8b2

To sound or circumvent
Hate cannot harm
A Foe so reticent
Or decree prohibit him
Lawful as Equilibrium -


H ST8b
