Riches I hold in light esteem by Emily Brontë (March 1, 1841)

Riches I hold in light esteem

And Love I laugh to scorn

And lust of Fame was but a dream

That vanished with the morn–

And if I pray, the only prayer

That moves my lips for me

Is–"Leave the heart that now I bear

And give me liberty."

Yes, as my swift days near their goal

'Tis all that I implore

Through life and death, a chainless soul

With courage to endure!
