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

Part Three: Love

V


DOUBT me, my dim companion!
Why, God would be content
With but a fraction of the love
Poured thee without a stint.
The whole of me, forever,        5
What more the woman can,—
Say quick, that I may dower thee
With last delight I own!
  
It cannot be my spirit,
For that was thine before;        10
I ceded all of dust I knew,—
What opulence the more
Had I, a humble maiden,
Whose farthest of degree
Was that she might        15
Some distant heaven,
Dwell timidly with thee!
