Emily Dickinson
The Malay--took the Pearl--
printer friendly version
The Malay -- took the Pearl --
Not -- I -- the Earl --
I -- feared the Sea -- too much
Unsanctified -- to touch --

Praying that I might be
Worthy -- the Destiny --
The Swarthy fellow swam --
And bore my Jewel -- Home --

Home to the Hut! What lot
Had I -- the Jewel -- got --
Borne on a Dusky Breast --
I had not deemed a Vest
Of Amber -- fit --

The Negro never knew
I -- wooed it -- too --
To gain, or be undone --
Alike to Him -- One --

(#452)
