Poems in English

Heart, not so heavy as mine

Heart, not so heavy as mine

Heart, not so heavy as mine
Wending late home
As it passed my window
Whistled itself a tune
A careless snatch a ballad A ditty of the street
Yet to my irritated Ear
An Anodyne so sweet
It was as if a Bobolink
Sauntering this way
Carolled, and paused, and carolled
Then bubbled slow away!
It was as if a chirping brook
Upon a dusty way
Set bleeding feet to minuets
Without the knowing why!
Tomorrow, night will come again
Perhaps, weary and sore
Ah Bugle! By my window
I pray you pass once more.



Poem Heart, not so heavy as mine - Emily Dickinson
