Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Three: Love

XLVII


HEART, we will forget him!
  You and I, to-night!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
  I will forget the light.
  
When you have done, pray tell me,        5
  That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you’re lagging,
  I may remember him!
