The Savior must have been A docile Gentleman— To come so far so cold a Day For little Fellowmen— The Road to Bethlehem Since He and I were Boys Was leveled, but for that 'twould be A rugged Billion Miles—

Emily Dickinson was born on December 10, 1830, in Amherst, Massachusetts.

She died in Amherst in 1886, and the first volume of her work was published posthumously in 1890.
