Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

As old as Woe

As old as Woe -
How old is that?
Some eighteen thousand years -
As old as Bliss
How old is that
They are of equal years

Together chiefest they ard found
But seldom side by side
From neither of them tho' he try
Can Human nature hide
