Emily Dickinson
The Beggar Lad -- dies early --
printer friendly version
The Beggar Lad -- dies early --
It's Somewhat in the Cold --
And Somewhat in the Trudging feet --
And haply, in the World --

The Cruel -- smiling -- bowing World --
That took its Cambric Way --
Nor heard the timid cry for "Bread" --
"Sweet Lady -- Charity" --

Among Redeemed Children
If Trudging feet may stand
The Barefoot time forgotten -- so --
The Sleet -- the bitter Wind --

The Childish Hands that teased for Pence
Lifted adoring -- them --
To Him whom never Ragged -- Coat
Did supplicate in vain --

(#717)
