One Crucifixion is recorded—only

Emily Dickinson 1830 (Amherst) – 1886 (Amherst)



One Crucifixion is recorded—only—
How many be
Is not affirmed of Mathematics—
Or History—

One Calvary—exhibited to Stranger—
As many be
As persons—or Peninsulas—
Gethsemane—

Is but a Province—in the Being's Centre—
Judea—
For Journey—or Crusade's Achieving—
Too near—

Our Lord—indeed—made Compound Witness—
And yet—
There's newer—nearer Crucifixion
Than That—

    „Doar o Răstignire se-înregistrează - One Crucifixion is recorded—only''

    Doar o Răstignire se-înregistrează,
    Câte or fi
    Matematica nu ne-o spune
    Și nici Istoria.

    Un Calvar i se-arată Străinului
    De parcă-s atâtea
    Persoane, Peninsule
    Cât Ghetsemani

    E doar o provincie-n miezul ființei
    Judeea,
    Pentr-un Sejur sau o Cruciadă,
    Prea-i lângă noi.

    Domnul nostru-i, desigur, Mărturie supremă
    Totuși,
    E o Răstignire mai nouă, mai lângă noi
    Decât a Lui.
