One Crucifixion is recorded-only

by Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson


One Crucifixion is recorded-only-
How many be
Is not affirmed of Mathematics-
Or History-

One Calvary-exhibited to Stranger-
As many be
As persons-or Peninsulas-

Is but a Province-in the Being's Centre-
For Journey-or Crusade's Achieving-
Too near-

Our Lord-indeed-made Compound Witness-
And yet-
There's newer-nearer Crucifixion
Than That-
