Poems in English

It was a quiet seeming Day

It was a quiet seeming Day

It was a quiet seeming Day
There was no harm in earth or sky
Till with the closing sun
There strayed an accidental Red
A Strolling Hue, one would have said
To westward of the Town

But when the Earth began to jar
And Houses vanished with a roar
And Human Nature hid
We comprehended by the Awe
As those that Dissolution saw
The Poppy in the Cloud



Poem It was a quiet seeming Day - Emily Dickinson
