Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

Judgment is justest

Judgment is justest
When the Judged,
His action laid away,
Divested is of every Disk
But his sincerity.

Honor is then the safest hue
In a posthumous Sun -
Not any color will endure
That scrutiny can burn.
