Emily Dickinson - Their Height in Heaven comforts not --

Their Height in Heaven comforts not --
Their Glory -- nought to me --
'Twas best imperfect -- as it was --
I'm finite -- I can't see --

The House of Supposition --
The Glimmering Frontier that
Skirts the Acres of Perhaps --
To Me -- shows insecure --

The Wealth I had -- contented me --
If 'twas a meaner size --
Then I had counted it until
It pleased my narrow Eyes --

Better than larger values --
That show however true --
This timid life of Evidence
Keeps pleading -- "I don't know."
