Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

He Outstripped Time With But A Bout

865

He outstripped Time with but a Bout,
He outstripped Stars and Sun
And then, unjaded, challenged God
In presence of the Throne.

And He and He in mighty List
Unto this present, run,
The larger Glory for the less
A just sufficient Ring.
