Emily Dickinson - "Faithful to the end" Amended

"Faithful to the end" Amended
From the Heavenly Clause --
Constancy with a Proviso
Constancy abhors --

"Crowns of Life" are servile Prizes
To the stately Heart,
Given for the Giving, solely,
No Emolument.


"Faithful to the end" Amended
From the Heavenly clause --
Lucrative indeed the offer
But the Heart withdraws --

"I will give" the base Proviso --
Spare Your "Crown of Life" --
Those it fits, too fair to wear it --
Try it on Yourself --

More people, especially those of religious persuasions, need to read this particular piece. It is gorgeous and delivers its commentary on "faith" with an edge, especially in the second version.

Emily Dickinson inspires me in lots of ways.You can tell this poem is coming from inside her heart and she knows how to express her feeling very well.
