Poems in English

I thought the Train would never come

I thought the Train would never come

I thought the Train would never come
How slow the whistle sang
I don’t believe a peevish Bird
So whimpered for the Spring
I taught my Heart a hundred times
Precisely what to say
Provoking Lover, when you came
Its Treatise flew away
To hide my strategy too late
To wiser be too soon
For miseries so halcyon
The happiness atone



Poem I thought the Train would never come - Emily Dickinson
