He forgot and I remembered

He forgot and I remembered

He forgot and I remembered
‘Twas an everyday affair
Long ago as Christ and Peter
“Warmed them” at the “Temple fire.”

“Thou wert with him” quoth “the Damsel”?
“No” said Peter, ’twasn’t me
Jesus merely “looked” at Peter
Could I do aught else to Thee?



Poem He forgot and I remembered - Emily Dickinson
