Emily Dickinson Quote

I reason, earth is short,
And anguish absolute.
And many hurt;
But what of that? I reason, we could die:
The best vitality
Cannot excel decay;
But what of that? I reason that in heaven
Somehow, it will be even,
Some new equation given;
But what of that?


Time and Eternity, p. 192 - Collected Poems (1993)
