Emily Dickinson, 1424

 
Hoop is in frjemde fining -
It Hert hat it Oktroai -
Hoop wurket ûnophâldlik
Mar útbrûkt is sy noait -

Oer dizze laden helpstof
Is net it minste wis
Mar har unike ympakt
Siert op wat uzes is -

 

Hope is a strange invention -
A Patent of the Heart -
In unremitting action
Yet never wearing out -

Of this electric adjunct
Not anything is known
But it’s unique momentum
Embellish all we own -

 

F1424 (J1392). Ofbylding: Amherst College Library, Emily Dickinson Collection, 215.
