Poems in English

No ladder needs the bird but skies

No ladder needs the bird but skies

No ladder needs the bird but skies
To situate its wings,
Nor any leader’s grim baton
Arraigns it as it sings.
The implements of bliss are few
As Jesus says of Him,
“Come unto me” the moiety
That wafts the cherubim.



Poem No ladder needs the bird but skies - Emily Dickinson
