Poems in English

I could suffice for Him, I knew

I could suffice for Him, I knew

I could suffice for Him, I knew
He could suffice for Me
Yet Hesitating Fractions Both
Surveyed Infinity

“Would I be Whole” He sudden broached
My syllable rebelled
‘Twas face to face with Nature forced
‘Twas face to face with God

Withdrew the Sun to Other Wests
Withdrew the furthest Star
Before Decision stooped to speech
And then be audibler

The Answer of the Sea unto
The Motion of the Moon
Herself adjust Her Tides unto
Could I do else with Mine?



Poem I could suffice for Him, I knew - Emily Dickinson
