Faithful to the end Amended

Written by: Emily Dickinson | Biography
 | Quotes (91) |
 "Faithful to the end" Amended
From the Heavenly Clause --
Constancy with a Proviso
Constancy abhors --

"Crowns of Life" are servile Prizes
To the stately Heart,
Given for the Giving, solely,
No Emolument.
-- "Faithful to the end" Amended From the Heavenly clause -- Lucrative indeed the offer But the Heart withdraws -- "I will give" the base Proviso -- Spare Your "Crown of Life" -- Those it fits, too fair to wear it -- Try it on Yourself --
