Poems in English

The Future never spoke

The Future never spoke

The Future never spoke
Nor will He like the Dumb
Reveal by sign a syllable
Of His Profound To Come

But when the News be ripe
Presents it in the Act
Forestalling Preparation
Escape or Substitute

Indifference to Him
The Dower as the Doom
His Office but to execute
Fate’s Telegram to Him



Poem The Future never spoke - Emily Dickinson
