Poems in English

As far from pity, as complaint

As far from pity, as complaint

As far from pity, as complaint
As cool to speech as stone
As numb to Revelation
As if my Trade were Bone

As far from time as History
As near yourself Today
As Children, to the Rainbow’s scarf
Or Sunset’s Yellow play

To eyelids in the Sepulchre
How dumb the Dancer lies
While Color’s Revelations break
And blaze the Butterflies!



Poem As far from pity, as complaint - Emily Dickinson
