Wise Poets – Emily Dickinson – I Have No Life But This

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (December 10, 1830 – May 15, 1886)

I have no Life but this —
To lead it here —
Nor any Death — but lest
Dispelled from there —

Nor tie to Earths to come —
Nor Action new —
Except through this extent —
The Realm of you —
