I died for Beauty - Emily Dickinson

I died for Beauty — but was scarce
Adjusted in the Tomb
When One who died for Truth, was lain
In an adjoining Room 

He questioned softly Why I failed?
"For beauty", I replied —
"And I — for Truth — Themself are One —
We Brethren, are", He said —

And so, as Kinsmen met a Night
We talked between the Rooms —
Until the Moss had reached our lips
And covered up — our names —

Un 10 de diciembre como hoy nació la gran poeta  
Emily Dickinson (1830 Amherst, Massachussets)
