You constituted Time

by Emily Dickinson


Original Language English

You constituted Time --
I deemed Eternity
A Revelation of Yourself --
'Twas therefore Deity

The Absolute -- removed
The Relative away --
That I unto Himself adjust
My slow idolatry --

-- from The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson, Edited by Thomas H. Johnson
