Emily Dickinson - Hope is a subtle Glutton --

Hope is a subtle Glutton --
He feeds upon the Fair --
And yet -- inspected closely
What Abstinence is there --

His is the Halcyon Table --
That never seats but One --
And whatsoever is consumed
The same amount remain --

It would seem that two are at the table, viz., Hope and the fair person.
