Poems in English

All these my banners be

All these my banners be

All these my banners be.
I sow my pageantry
In May
It rises train by train
Then sleeps in state again
My chancel all the plain
Today.

To lose if one can find again
To miss if one shall meet
The Burglar cannot rob then
The Broker cannot cheat.
So build the hillocks gaily
Thou little spade of mine
Leaving nooks for Daisy
And for Columbine
You and I the secret
Of the Crocus know
Let us chant it softly
“There is no more snow!”

To him who keeps an Orchis’ heart
The swamps are pink with June.



Poem All these my banners be - Emily Dickinson
