Emily clearly demonstrates her act of compassion to those sheltering under misery.She wishes and hopes that she could be of help to them.She seems to be irked by people’s suffering.
If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking-Emily Dickinson.
If I can stop one heart from breaking
I shall not live in vain
If I can ease one life the Aching
Or cool one pain
Or help one fainting Robin
Unto his nest again
I shall not live in vain.
