Poems in English

If the foolish, call them “flowers”

If the foolish, call them “flowers”

If the foolish, call them “flowers”
Need the wiser, tell?
If the Savants “Classify” them
It is just as well!

Those who read the “Revelations”
Must not criticize
Those who read the same Edition
With beclouded Eyes!

Could we stand with that Old “Moses”
“Canaan” denied
Scan like him, the stately landscape
On the other side

Doubtless, we should deem superfluous
Many Sciences,
Not pursued by learned Angels
In scholastic skies!

Low amid that glad Belles lettres
Grant that we may stand,
Stars, amid profound Galaxies
At that grand “Right hand”!



Poem If the foolish, call them “flowers” - Emily Dickinson
