"I Want"&Mdash;It Pleaded&Mdash;All Its Life - Poem by Emily Dickinson

"I want"—it pleaded—All its life—
I want—was chief it said
When Skill entreated it—the last—
And when so newly dead—

I could not deem it late—to hear
That single—steadfast sigh—
The lips had placed as with a "Please"
Toward Eternity—
Emily Dickinson
