Through the strait pass of suffering by Emily Dickinson

Through the strait pass of suffering --
The Martyrs -- even -- trod.
Their feet -- upon Temptations --
Their faces -- upon God --

A stately -- shriven -- Company --
Convulsion -- playing round --
Harmless -- as streaks of Meteor --
Upon a Planet's Bond --

Their faith -- the everlasting troth --
Their Expectation -- fair --
The Needle -- to the North Degree --
Wades -- so -- thro' polar Air!

Other poems by 'Emily Dickinson'

There is another sky

I'm Nobody! Who are you?

Because I could not stop for Death

Nobody knows this little Rose

I started Early ,Took my Dog

Awake ye muses nine

If I can stop one Heart from breaking

My life closed twice before its close

Heart! We will forget him!

A narrow Fellow in the Grass
