Dickinson, Emily - One life of so much consequence Yet I for it would pay

Identifier

Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

A description of the experience

One life of so much consequence
Yet I for it would pay
My soul’s entire income
In ceaseless salary

One pearl to me so signal
That I would instant dive
Although I knew to take it
Would cost me just a life

 The sea is full I know it
That does not blur my gem
It burns distinct from all the row
Intact in diadem

The life is thick I know it
Yet not so dense a crowd
But monarchs are perceptible
Far down the dustiest road

The source of the experience
