I Like a Look of Agony #241 Emily Dickinson Recitation and Explanation


Emily Dickinson
I  Like a Look of Agony #24




Emily Dickinson
I  Like a Look of Agony #24

I like a look of Agony,
Because I know it's true—
Men do not sham Convulsion,
Nor simulate, a Throe—

The Eyes glaze once—and that is Death—
Impossible to feign
The Beads upon the Forehead
By homely Anguish strung.
