Poems in English

The Skies can’t keep their secret!

The Skies can’t keep their secret!

The Skies can’t keep their secret!
They tell it to the Hills
The Hills just tell the Orchards
And they the Daffodils!

A Bird by chance that goes that way
Soft overhears the whole
If I should bribe the little Bird
Who knows but she would tell?

I think I won’t however
It’s finer not to know
If Summer were an Axiom
What sorcery had Snow?

So keep your secret Father!
I would not if I could,
Know what the Sapphire Fellows, do,
In your new-fashioned world!



Poem The Skies can’t keep their secret! - Emily Dickinson
