A Man (Poem by Emily Dickinson)

Emily Dickinson

A Man
By Emily Dickinson


Fate slew him, but he did not drop;
    She felled — he did not fall — 
Impaled him on her fiercest stakes — 
    He neutralized them all.

She stung him, sapped his firm advance,
    But, when her worst was done,
And he, unmoved, regarded her,
    Acknowledged him a man.
