Escape is such a thankful Word

Escape is such a thankful Word

Escape is such a thankful Word
I often in the Night
Consider it unto myself
No spectacle in sight

Escape it is the Basket
In which the Heart is caught
When down some awful Battlement
The rest of Life is dropt

‘Tis not to sight the savior
It is to be the saved
And that is why I lay my Head
Upon this trusty word



Poem Escape is such a thankful Word - Emily Dickinson
