Emily Dickinson - This heart that broke so long

This heart that broke so long --
These feet that never flagged --
This faith that watched for star in vain,
Give gently to the dead --

Hound cannot overtake the Hare
That fluttered panting, here --
Nor any schoolboy rob the nest
Tenderness builded there.

Gentle things will triumph. Blessed are the poor in spirit.

This poem is a very passionate as she might have had a (crush so to speak)for a life time on a school boy she once knew...She describes it a very passionately...As she speaks of the hound and the hare..it shows it was chased by the hound until they were panting extremely.
NO school boy captured her heart but they showed oneanother tenderness (or friendship) due to her faith...Maybe...It is enitely an opinion on any ones part.She was a very tender soul with a tender heart...
