Poesy: Emily Dickinson

They say that 'Time assuages' ...

They say that "Time assuages"—
Time never did assuage—
An actual suffering strengthens
As Sinews do, with age—

Time is a Test of Trouble—
But not a Remedy—
If such it prove, it prove too
There was no Malady—

- Emily Dickinson

from Writer's Almanac
