Emily Dickinson

Dec. 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886

 

Our share of night to bear...

by Emily Dickinson

Our share of night to bear,
Our share of morning,
Our blank in bliss to fill,
Our blank in scorning.

Here a star, and there a star,
Some lose their way.
Here a mist, and there a mist,
Afterwards -- day!
