Poems in English

It is easy to work when the soul is at play

It is easy to work when the soul is at play

It is easy to work when the soul is at play
But when the soul is in pain
The hearing him put his playthings up
Makes work difficult then

It is simple, to ache in the Bone, or the Rind
But Gimlets among the nerve
Mangle daintier terribler
Like a Panter in the Glove



Poem It is easy to work when the soul is at play - Emily Dickinson
