"Soul, take thy risk.

By Emily Dickinson
Soul, take thy risk. [1]
With Death to be [2]
Were better than be not [3]
With thee [4]
Poem 1151 [F1136]
"Soul, take they risk"
Analysis by David Preest
As in poem 139, Emily addresses her soul. This time she tells her soul to 'take [the] risk' that it will become immortal at death. For herself,
if her soul is not immortal, she would prefer to be dead!
