Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

To lose Thee

To lose thee, sweeter than to gain
All other hearts I knew.
Tis true the drought is destitute
But, then, I had the dew!

The Caspian has its realms of sand,
Its other realm of sea.
Without this sterile perquisite
No Caspian could be.

[Hata Bildir]
