Poems in English

The things we thought that we should do

The things we thought that we should do

The things we thought that we should do
We other things have done
But those peculiar industries
Have never been begun

The Lands we thought that we should seek
When large enough to run
By Speculation ceded
To Speculation’s Son

The Heaven, in which we hoped to pause
When Discipline was done
Untenable to Logic
But possibly the one



Poem The things we thought that we should do - Emily Dickinson
