Her Losses make our Gains ashamed

Her Losses make our Gains ashamed

Her Losses make our Gains ashamed
She bore Life’s empty Pack
As gallantly as if the East
Were swinging at her Back.
Life’s empty Pack is heaviest,
As every Porter knows
In vain to punish Honey
It only sweeter grows.



Poem Her Losses make our Gains ashamed - Emily Dickinson
