I think just how my shape will rise

Emily Dickinson

237

I think just how my shape will rise—
When I shall be "forgiven"—
Till Hair—and Eyes—and timid Head—
Are out of sight—in Heaven—

I think just how my lips will weigh—
With shapeless—quivering—prayer—
That you—so late—"Consider" me—
The "Sparrow" of your Care—

I mind me that of Anguish—sent—
Some drifts were moved away—
Before my simple bosom—broke—
And why not thisif they?

And so I con that thing—"forgiven"—
Until—delirious—borne—
By my long bright—and longertrust—
I drop my Heart—unshriven!
