Emily Dickinson [1830 - m. 15 Maio 1886]

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, - the two 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.

[Emily Dickinson - voz de Glenda Jackson:
I died for beauty but was scarce]Castpost
