Poems in English

I held a Jewel in my fingers

I held a Jewel in my fingers

I held a Jewel in my fingers
And went to sleep
The day was warm, and winds were prosy
I said “‘Twill keep”

I woke and chid my honest fingers,
The Gem was gone
And now, an Amethyst remembrance
Is all I own



Poem I held a Jewel in my fingers - Emily Dickinson
