“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 a malady

-Emily Dickinson (1830-1886).

 

Taken from the Selected Poems of Emily Dickinson.
