Work for Immortality

Work for Immortality

Some Work for Immortality
The Chiefer part, for Time
He Compensates immediately
The former Checks on Fame

Slow Gold but Everlasting
The Bullion of Today
Contrasted with the Currency
Of Immortality

A Beggar Here and There
Is gifted to discern
Beyond the Broker’s insight
One’s Money One’s the Mine –



Poem Work for Immortality - Emily Dickinson
