Day 241: A Man May Make a Remark

By Emily Dickinson


A Man may make a Remark –

In itself – a quiet thing

That may furnish the fuse into a spark

In dormant nature – lain –


Let us divide – with skill –

Let us discourse – with care –

Powder exists in Charcoal –

Before it exists in Fire –


Thank you for reading.
