Go back to "I want" - it pleaded - All its life

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
"I want" - it pleaded - All its life

"I want" -- it pleaded -- All its life --
I want -- was chief it said
When Skill entreated it -- the last --
And when so newly dead --

I could not deem it late -- to hear
That single -- steadfast sigh --
The lips had placed as with a "Please"
Toward Eternity --

(#731)
