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

Part Five: The Single Hound

XCVI


“REMEMBER me,” implored the Thief—
Oh magnanimity!
“My Visitor in Paradise
I give thee Guaranty.”
  
That courtesy will fair remain,        5
When the delight is dust,
With which we cite this mightiest case
Of compensated Trust.
  
Of All, we are allowed to hope,
But Affidavit stands        10
That this was due, where some, we fear,
Are unexpected friends.
