Real: Naprawdę

I like a look of agony,
Because I know it’s true;
Men do not sham convulsion,
Nor simulate a throe.


The eyes glaze once, and that is death.
Impossible to feign
The beads upon the forehead
By homely anguish strung.




Biorę przykład z agonii,
Bo wiem, że to prawda;
Człowiek nie finguje drgawką,
Ni łudzi spazmem.


To śmierć, raz się zaszklą oczy.
Nie do udawania
Potu perlenia na czole
Co nawleczone konaniem.



Emily Dickinson used the articles consciously. I like a look of agony (Time and Eternity, XII, Real) declines fondness: we would have the look of agony, then. I lost a world (Time and Eternity, XXXVI, Lost) does not pronounce the end of the world.
