{poem} Escape is such a thankful word - Emily Dickinson

Escape is such a thankful word Escape is such a thankful Word I often in the Night Consider it unto myself No spectacle in sight

Escape -- it is the Basket In which the Heart is caught When down some awful Battlement The rest of Life is dropt --

'Tis not to sight the savior -- It is to be the saved -- And that is why I lay my Head Upon this trusty word --

by Emily Dickinson
