I had not minded Walls

I had not minded Walls

I had not minded Walls
Were Universe one Rock
And far I heard his silver Call
The other side the Block

I’d tunnel till my Groove
Pushed sudden thro’ to his
Then my face take her Recompense
The looking in his Eyes

But ’tis a single Hair
A filament a law
A Cobweb wove in Adamant
A Battlement of Straw

A limit like the Veil
Unto the Lady’s face
But every Mesh a Citadel
And Dragons in the Crease



Poem I had not minded Walls - Emily Dickinson
