‘Tis little I could care for pearls who own the ample sea

Diorama At The Dickinson Homestead (1985)

‘Tis little I could care for pearls
Who own the ample sea;
Or brooches, when the Emperor
With rubies pelteth me;

Or gold, who am the Prince of Mines;
Or diamonds, when I see
A diadem to fit a dome
Continual crowning me.

–Emily Dickinson
