Emily Dickinson - So large my Will

So large my Will
The little that I may
Embarrasses
Like gentle infamy --

Affront to Him
For whom the Whole were small
Affront to me
Who know His Meed of all.

Earth at the best
Is but a scanty Toy --
Bought, carried Home
To Immortality.

It looks so small
We chiefly wonder then
At our Conceit
In purchasing.
