"Faithful to the end" Amended

Emily Dickinson


"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—
