Poemsby Emily Dickinson

Surrender

 Doubt me, my dim companion! Why, God would be content With but a fraction of the love Poured thee without a stint. The whole of me, forever, What more the woman can, - Say quick, that I may dower thee With last delight I own! 
 It cannot be my spirit, For that was thine before; I ceded all of dust I knew, - What opulence the more Had I, a humble maiden, Whose farthest of degree Was that she might, Some distant heaven, Dwell timidly with thee!
