Emily Dickinson's Collected Poems

Part Two: Love 43. Poor little heart!

Poor little heart!

Did they forget thee?

Then dinna care! Then dinna care!

Proud little heart!

Did they forsake thee?

Be debonair! Be debonair!

Frail little heart!

I would not break thee:

Could'st credit me? Could'st credit me?

Gay little heart!

Like morning glory

Thou'll wilted be; thou'll wilted be!
