Poems in English

It was a Grave, yet bore no Stone

It was a Grave, yet bore no Stone

It was a Grave, yet bore no Stone
Enclosed ’twas not of Rail
A Consciousness its Acre, and
It held a Human Soul.

Entombed by whom, for what offence
If Home or Foreign born
Had I the curiosity
‘Twere not appeased of men

Till Resurrection, I must guess
Denied the small desire
A Rose upon its Ridge to sow
Or take away a Briar.



Poem It was a Grave, yet bore no Stone - Emily Dickinson
