'Faithful To The End' Amended - Poem by Emily Dickinson

'Faithful to the end' Amended
From the Heavenly Clause -
Constancy with a Proviso
Constancy abhors -

'Crowns of Life' are servile Prizes
To the stately Heart,
Given for the Giving, solely,
No Emolument.

-

'Faithful to the end' Amended
From the Heavenly clause -
Lucrative indeed the offer
But the Heart withdraws -

'I will give' the base Proviso -
Spare Your 'Crown of Life' -
Those it fits, too fair to wear it -
Try it on Yourself -
