Poems in English

He touched me, so I live to know

He touched me, so I live to know

He touched me, so I live to know
That such a day, permitted so,
I groped upon his breast
It was a boundless place to me
And silenced, as the awful sea
Puts minor streams to rest.

And now, I’m different from before,
As if I breathed superior air
Or brushed a Royal Gown
My feet, too, that had wandered so
My Gypsy face transfigured now
To tenderer Renown

Into this Port, if I might come,
Rebecca, to Jerusalem,
Would not so ravished turn
Nor Persian, baffled at her shrine
Lift such a Crucifixial sign
To her imperial Sun.



Poem He touched me, so I live to know - Emily Dickinson
