Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Five: The Single Hound

CXLI


THE HEALED Heart shows its shallow scar
With confidential moan,
Not mended by Mortality
Are fabrics truly torn.
To go its convalescent way        5
So shameless is to see,
More genuine were Perfidy
Than such Fidelity.
