Poems in English

Shall I take thee, the Poet said

Shall I take thee, the Poet said

Shall I take thee, the Poet said
To the propounded word?
Be stationed with the Candidates
Till I have finer tried

The Poet searched Philology
And when about to ring
For the suspended Candidate
There came unsummoned in

That portion of the Vision
The Word applied to fill
Not unto nomination
The Cherubim reveal



Poem Shall I take thee, the Poet said - Emily Dickinson
