Poems in English

Put up my lute!

Put up my lute!

Put up my lute!
What of my Music!
Since the sole ear I cared to charm
Passive as Granite laps My Music
Sobbing will suit as well as psalm!

Would but the “Memnon” of the Desert
Teach me the strain
That vanquished Him
When He surrendered to the Sunrise
Maybe that would awaken them!



Poem Put up my lute! - Emily Dickinson
