Poems in English

She rose to His Requirement dropt

She rose to His Requirement dropt

She rose to His Requirement dropt
The Playthings of Her Life
To take the honorable Work
Of Woman, and of Wife

If ought She missed in Her new Day,
Of Amplitude, or Awe
Or first Prospective Or the Gold
In using, wear away,

It lay unmentioned as the Sea
Develop Pearl, and Weed,
But only to Himself be known
The Fathoms they abide



Poem She rose to His Requirement dropt - Emily Dickinson
