The Truth Must Dazzle Gradually

 Tell All the Truth but Tell It Slant
by Emily Dickinson 

 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 —
