Poems in English

Safe in their Alabaster Chambers

Safe in their Alabaster Chambers

Safe in their Alabaster Chambers
Untouched my Morning
And untouched by Noon
Sleep the meek members of the Resurrection
Rafter of satin,
And Roof of stone.

Light laughs the breeze
In her Castle above them
Babbles the Bee in a stolid Ear,
Pipe the Sweet Birds in ignorant cadence
Ah, what sagacity perished here!



Poem Safe in their Alabaster Chambers - Emily Dickinson
