Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

Witchcraft Was Hung, In History

'Twas such a little - little boat
That toddled down the bay!
'Twas such a gallant - gallant sea
That beckoned it away!

'Twas such a greedy, greedy wave
That licked it from the Coast -
Nor ever guessed the stately sails
My little craft was lost!
