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

Part Three: Love

XLIII


      POOR little heart!
      Did they forget thee?
Then dinna care! Then dinna care!
  
      Proud little heart!
      Did they forsake thee?        5
Be debonair! Be debonair!
  
      Frail little heart!
      I would not break thee:
Could’st credit me? Could’st credit me?
  
      Gay little heart!        10
      Like morning glory
Thou’ll wilted be; thou’ll wilted be!
