“The truth must dazzle gradually”

Tell All the Truth, but Tell it Slant
by Emily Dickenson

Tell all the truth but tell it slant,
Success in circuit lies,
Too bright for our infirm delight
The truth’s superb surprise;

As lightning to the children eased
With explanation kind,
The truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind.
