Poems in English

Bound a trouble

Bound a trouble

Bound a trouble
And lives can bear it!
Limit how deep a bleeding go!
So many drops of vital scarlet
Deal with the soul
As with Algebra!

Tell it the Ages to a cypher
And it will ache contented on
Sing at its pain as any Workman
Notching the fall of the Even Sun!



Poem Bound a trouble - Emily Dickinson
