My Reward for Being, was This

My Reward for Being, was This

My Reward for Being, was This.
My premium My Bliss
An Admiralty, less
A Sceptre penniless
And Realms just Dross

When Thrones accost my Hands
With “Me, Miss, Me”
I’ll unroll Thee
Dominions dowerless beside this Grace
Election Vote
The Ballots of Eternity, will show just that.



Poem My Reward for Being, was This - Emily Dickinson
