Poems in English

Their Barricade against the Sky

Their Barricade against the Sky

Their Barricade against the Sky
The martial Trees withdraw
And with a Flag at every turn
Their Armies are no more.

What Russet Halts in Nature’s March
They indicate or cause
An inference of Mexico
Effaces the Surmise

Recurrent to the After Mind
That Massacre of Air
The Wound that was not Wound nor Scar
But Holidays of War



Poem Their Barricade against the Sky - Emily Dickinson
