Poems in English

I see thee better in the Dark

I see thee better in the Dark

I see thee better in the Dark
I do not need a Light
The Love of Thee a Prism be
Excelling Violet

I see thee better for the Years
That hunch themselves between
The Miner’s Lamp sufficient be
To nullify the Mine

And in the Grave I see Thee best
Its little Panels be
Aglow All ruddy with the Light
I held so high, for Thee

What need of Day
To Those whose Dark hath so surpassing Sun
It deem it be Continually
At the Meridian?



Poem I see thee better in the Dark - Emily Dickinson
