Poems in English

My nosegays are for Captives

My nosegays are for Captives

My nosegays are for Captives
Dim expectant eyes,
Fingers denied the plucking,
Patient till Paradise.

To such, if they should whisper
Of morning and the moor,
They bear no other errand,
And I, no other prayer.



Poem My nosegays are for Captives - Emily Dickinson
