Go back to The Manner of its Death

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
The Manner of its Death

The Manner of its Death
When Certain it must die --
'Tis deemed a privilege to choose --
'Twas Major Andre's Way --

When Choice of Life -- is past --
There yet remains a Love
Its little Fate to stipulate --

How small in those who live --

The Miracle to tease
With Babble of the styles --
How "they are Dying mostly -- now" --
And Customs at "St. James"!
