Poems in English

A science so the Savants say

A science so the Savants say

A science so the Savants say,
“Comparative Anatomy”
By which a single bone
Is made a secret to unfold
Of some rare tenant of the mold,
Else perished in the stone

So to the eye prospective led,
This meekest flower of the mead
Upon a winter’s day,
Stands representative in gold
Of Rose and Lily, manifold,
And countless Butterfly!



Poem A science so the Savants say - Emily Dickinson
