Poems in English

Ourselves were wed one summer dear

Ourselves were wed one summer dear

Ourselves were wed one summer dear
Your Vision was in June
And when Your little Lifetime failed,
I wearied too of mine

And overtaken in the Dark
Where You had put me down
By Some one carrying a Light
I too received the Sign.

‘Tis true Our Futures different lay
Your Cottage faced the sun
While Oceans and the North must be
On every side of mine

‘Tis true, Your Garden led the Bloom,
For mine in Frosts was sown
And yet, one Summer, we were Queens
But You were crowned in June



Poem Ourselves were wed one summer dear - Emily Dickinson
