Poems in English

He parts Himself like Leaves

He parts Himself like Leaves

He parts Himself like Leaves
And then He closes up
Then stands upon the Bonnet
Of Any Buttercup

And then He runs against
And oversets a Rose
And then does Nothing
Then away upon a Jib He goes

And dangles like a Mote
Suspended in the Noon
Uncertain to return Below
Or settle in the Moon

What come of Him at Night
The privilege to say
Be limited by Ignorance
What come of Him That Day

The Frost possess the World
In Cabinets be shown
A Sepulchre of quaintest Floss
An Abbey a Cocoon



Poem He parts Himself like Leaves - Emily Dickinson
