Softened by Time’s consummate plush

Softened by Time’s consummate plush

Softened by Time’s consummate plush,
How sleek the woe appears
That threatened childhood’s citadel
And undermined the years.

Bisected now, by bleaker griefs,
We envy the despair
That devastated childhood’s realm,
So easy to repair.



Poem Softened by Time’s consummate plush - Emily Dickinson
