Jimmy Ruffin, “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted,” 1966




reading table

Our share of night to bear –
Our share of morning –
Our blank in bliss to fill,
Our blank in scorning –

Here a star, and there a star,
Some lose their way!
Here a mist – and there a mist –
Afterwards – Day!

—Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), 116 (Franklin)
