Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part One: Life

XXII


I HAD no time to hate, because
The grave would hinder me,
And life was not so ample I
Could finish enmity.
  
Nor had I time to love; but since        5
Some industry must be,
The little toil of love, I thought,
Was large enough for me.
