I Died for Beauty, But Was Scarce
Emily Dickinson
3
I died for beauty, but was scarce
Adjusted in the tomb,
4
When one who died for truth was lain
In an adjoining room.
5
He questioned softly why I failed?
“For beauty,” I replied.
6
“And I for truth,—the two are one;
We brethren are,” he said.
7
And so, as kinsmen met a night,
We talked between the rooms,
8
Until the moss had reached our lips,
And covered up our names.

I Died for Beauty, But Was Scarce Emily Dickinson
I died for beauty, but was scarce Adjusted in the tomb,
When one who died for truth was lain In an adjoining room.
He questioned softly why I failed? “For beauty,” I replied.
“And I for truth,—the two are one; We brethren are,” he said.
And so, as kinsmen met a night, We talked between the rooms,
Until the moss had reached our lips, And covered up our names.
