Poems in English

It knew no lapse, nor Diminuation

It knew no lapse, nor Diminuation

It knew no lapse, nor Diminuation
But large serene
Burned on until through Dissolution
It failed from Men

I could not deem these Planetary forces
Annulled
But suffered an Exchange of Territory
Or World



Poem It knew no lapse, nor Diminuation - Emily Dickinson
