Emily Dickinson (10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)
"Houses"—so the Wise Men tell me
"Houses"—so the Wise Men tell me—
"Mansions"! Mansions must be warm!
Mansions cannot let the tears in,
Mansions must exclude the storm!
"Many Mansions," by "his Father,"
I don't know him; snugly built!
Could the Children find the way there—
Some, would even trudge tonight!
