Poems in English

How many schemes may die

How many schemes may die

How many schemes may die
In one short Afternoon
Entirely unknown
To those they most concern
The man that was not lost
Because by accident
He varied by a Ribbon’s width
From his accustomed route
The Love that would not try
Because beside the Door
It must be competitions
Some unsuspecting Horse was tied
Surveying his Despair



Poem How many schemes may die - Emily Dickinson
