Poems, Third Series

Author: Emily Dickinson  | Date: 1896


FATE slew him, but he did not drop;

She felled- he did not fall-

Impaled him on her fiercest stakes-

He neutralized them all.

She stung him, sapped his firm advance,

But, when her worst was done,

And he, unmoved, regarded her,

Acknowledged him a man.
