Poemsby Emily Dickinson


 Poor little heart!
Did they forget thee?
Then dinna care! Then dinna care!
 Proud little heart!
Did they forsake thee?
Be debonair! Be debonair!
 Frail little heart!
I would not break thee:
Could'st credit me? Could'st credit me?
 Gay little heart!
Like morning glory
Thou'll wilted be; thou'll wilted be!
