Poems in English

Had I known that the first was the last

Had I known that the first was the last

Had I known that the first was the last
I should have kept it longer.
Had I known that the last was the first
I should have drunk it stronger.
Cup, it was your fault,
Lip was not the liar.
No, lip, it was yours,
Bliss was most to blame.



Poem Had I known that the first was the last - Emily Dickinson
