POEM OF THE DAY: They Say that ‘Time Assauges’

by Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886).

They Say that ‘Time assuages’

They say that ‘time assuages,’–
   Time never did assuage;
An actual suffering strengthens,
   As sinews do, with age.

Time is a test of trouble,
   But not a remedy.
If such it prove, it prove too
   There was no malady.
