You're right-

by Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson


You're right-"the way is narrow"-
And "difficult the Gate"-
And "few there be"-Correct again-
That "enter in-thereat"-

'Tis Costly-So are purples!
'Tis just the price of Breath-
With but the "Discount" of the Grave-
Termed by the Brokers-"Death"!

And after that-there's Heaven-
The Good Man's-"Dividend"-
And Bad Men-"go to Jail"-
I guess-
