Poems in English

Facts by our side are never sudden

Facts by our side are never sudden

Facts by our side are never sudden
Until they look around
And then they scare us like a spectre
Protruding from the Ground

The height of our portentous Neighbor
We never know
Till summoned to his recognition
By an Adieu

Adieu for whence
The sage cannot conjecture
The bravest die
As ignorant of their resumption
As you or I



Poem Facts by our side are never sudden - Emily Dickinson
