Poems in English

The Heart has narrow Banks

The Heart has narrow Banks

The Heart has narrow Banks
It measures like the Sea
In mighty unremitting Bass
And Blue Monotony

Till Hurricane bisect
And as itself discerns
Its insufficient Area
The Heart convulsive learns

That Calm is but a Wall
Of unattempted Gauze
An instant’s Push demolishes
A Questioning dissolves.



Poem The Heart has narrow Banks - Emily Dickinson
