Poems in English

I thought that nature was enough

I thought that nature was enough

I thought that nature was enough
Till Human nature came
But that the other did absorb
As Parallax a Flame

Of Human nature just aware
There added the Divine
Brief struggle for capacity
The power to contain

Is always as the contents
But give a Giant room
And you will lodge a Giant
And not a smaller man



Poem I thought that nature was enough - Emily Dickinson
