Three by Dickinson IV

Three epigrams by Emily Elizabeth Dickinson.

Who knows how deep the Heart is
and how much it holds?

Love is the one perfect labor
nought can supersede.

Why the full heart is speechless,
is one of the great wherefores.

New Poems of Emily Dickinson (1993), ed. William H. Shurr with Anna Dunlap & Emily Grey Shurr, ## 57, 66, 123; pp. 24, 25, 29.
