The Bible is an antique Volume

The Bible is an antique Volume

The Bible is an antique Volume
Written by faded men
At the suggestion of Holy Spectres
Subjects Bethlehem
Eden the ancient Homestead
Satan the Brigadier
Judas the Great Defaulter
David the Troubador
Sin a distinguished Precipice
Others must resist
Boys that “believe” are very lonesome
Other Boys are “lost”
Had but the Tale a warbling Teller
All the Boys would come
Orpheus’ Sermon captivated
It did not condemn



Poem The Bible is an antique Volume - Emily Dickinson
