8. 'Tis So Much Joy! By: Emily Dickinson

'Tis so much joy! 'Tis so much joy! 
If I should fail, what poverty! 
And yet, as poor as I,
Have ventured all upon a throw! 
Have gained! Yes! Hesitated so—
This side the Victory! 

Life is but Life! And Death, but Death! 
Bliss is, but Bliss, and Breath but Breath! 
And if indeed I fail,
At least, to know the worst, is sweet! 
Defeat means nothing but Defeat,
No drearier, can befall! 

And if I gain! Oh Gun at Sea! 
Oh Bells, that in the Steeples be! 
At first, repeat it slow! 
For Heaven is a different thing,
Conjectured, and waked sudden in—
And might extinguish me!
