Poems in English

This was a Poet It is That

This was a Poet It is That

This was a Poet It is That
Distills amazing sense
From ordinary Meanings
And Attar so immense

From the familiar species
That perished by the Door
We wonder it was not Ourselves
Arrested it before

Of Pictures, the Discloser
The Poet it is He
Entitles Us by Contrast
To ceaseless Poverty

Of portion so unconscious
The Robbing could not harm
Himself to Him a Fortune
Exterior to Time



Poem This was a Poet It is That - Emily Dickinson
