Poems in English

Without this there is nought

Without this there is nought

Without this there is nought
All other Riches be
As is the Twitter of a Bird
Heard opposite the Sea

I could not care to gain
A lesser than the Whole
For did not this include themself
As Seams include the Ball?

I wished a way might be
My Heart to subdivide
‘Twould magnify the Gratitude
And not reduce the Gold


Poem Without this there is nought - Emily Dickinson
