43. Poor little heart

____POOR little heart!
____Did they forget thee?
Then dinna care! Then dinna care!

____Proud little heart!
____Did they forsake thee?
Be debonair! Be debonair!

____Frail little heart!
____I would not break thee:
Could’st credit me? Could’st credit me?

____Gay little heart!
____Like morning glory
Thou’ll wilted be; though’ll wilted be!

Emily Dickinson
