Emily Dickinson								 
 To fight aloud, is very brave - 			
 Unto like Story - Trouble has enticed me -	 	
 I like a look of Agony	 				
 After great pain, a formal feeling comes -	
 The name - of it - is "Autumn" - 
 He fought like those Who?ve nought to lose -	
 When I was small, a Woman died -	 		
 It feels a shame to be Alive -	 			
 One Anguish - in a Crowd -	 			
 They dropped like Flakes -	 			
 If any sink, assure that this, now standing -	 	
 The Battle fought between the Soul	 		
 No Rack can torture me -	 			
 My Portion is Defeat - today -	 		
My Life had stood - a Loaded Gun - 	 		
 Color - Caste - Denomination -	 		
 Dying! To be afraid of thee	 			
 My Triumph lasted till the Drums	 		
 I never hear that one is dead
