Not probable The barest Chance

Not probable The barest Chance

Not probable The barest Chance
A smile too few a word too much
And far from Heaven as the Rest
The Soul so close on Paradise

What if the Bird from journey far
Confused by Sweets as Mortals are
Forget the secret of His wing
And perish but a Bough between
Oh, Groping feet
Oh Phantom Queen!



Poem Not probable The barest Chance - Emily Dickinson
