Just Once! Oh least Request!

Just Once! Oh least Request!

Just Once! Oh least Request!
Could Adamant refuse
So small a Grace
So scanty put,
Such agonizing terms?
Would not a God of Flint
Be conscious of a sigh
As down His Heaven dropt remote
“Just Once” Sweet Deity?



Poem Just Once! Oh least Request! - Emily Dickinson
