Poems in English

I gained it so

I gained it so

I gained it so
By Climbing slow
By Catching at the Twigs that grow
Between the Bliss and me
It hung so high
As well the Sky
Attempt by Strategy

I said I gained it
This was all
Look, how I clutch it
Lest it fall
And I a Pauper go
Unfitted by an instant’s Grace
For the Contented Beggar’s face
I wore an hour ago



Poem I gained it so - Emily Dickinson
