A poem by Emily Dickinson.

Post 606 - Emily Dickinson (1830–86).

Complete Poems. 1924.

Part One: Life


We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies.

The heroism we recite
Would be a daily thing,
Did not ourselves the cubits warp
For fear to be a king.
