There is a Shame of Nobleness

There is a Shame of Nobleness

There is a Shame of Nobleness
Confronting Sudden Pelf
A finer Shame of Ecstasy
Convicted of Itself

A best Disgrace a Brave Man feels
Acknowledged of the Brave
One More “Ye Blessed” to be told
But that’s Behind the Grave



Poem There is a Shame of Nobleness - Emily Dickinson
