Poems in English

These held their Wick above the West

These held their Wick above the West

These held their Wick above the West
Till when the Red declined
Or how the Amber aided it
Defied to be defined

Then waned without disparagement
In a dissembling Hue
That would not let the Eye decide
Did it abide or no



Poem These held their Wick above the West - Emily Dickinson
