Poems in English

Their Height in Heaven comforts not

Their Height in Heaven comforts not

Their Height in Heaven comforts not
Their Glory nought to me
‘Twas best imperfect as it was
I’m finite I can’t see

The House of Supposition
The Glimmering Frontier that
Skirts the Acres of Perhaps
To Me shows insecure

The Wealth I had contented me
If ’twas a meaner size
Then I had counted it until
It pleased my narrow Eyes

Better than larger values
That show however true
This timid life of Evidence
Keeps pleading “I don’t know.”



Poem Their Height in Heaven comforts not - Emily Dickinson
