On a Columnar Self

On a Columnar Self

On a Columnar Self
How ample to rely
In Tumult or Extremity
How good the Certainty

That Lever cannot pry
And Wedge cannot divide
Conviction That Granitic Base
Though None be on our Side

Suffice Us for a Crowd
Ourself and Rectitude
And that Assembly not far off
From furthest Spirit God



Poem On a Columnar Self - Emily Dickinson
