Poems in English

I cannot see my soul but know ’tis there

I cannot see my soul but know ’tis there

I cannot see my soul but know ’tis there
Nor ever saw his house nor furniture,
Who has invited me with him to dwell;
But a confiding guest consult as well,
What raiment honor him the most,
That I be adequately dressed,
For he insures to none
Lest men specified adorn
Procuring him perpetual drest
By dating it a sudden feast.



Poem I cannot see my soul but know ’tis there - Emily Dickinson
