Poems in English

You said that I “was Great” one Day

You said that I “was Great” one Day

You said that I “was Great” one Day
Then “Great” it be if that please Thee
Or Small or any size at all
Nay I’m the size suit Thee

Tall like the Stag would that?
Or lower like the Wren
Or other heights of Other Ones
I’ve seen?

Tell which it’s dull to guess
And I must be Rhinoceros
Or Mouse
At once for Thee

So say if Queen it be
Or Page please Thee
I’m that or nought
Or other thing if other thing there be
With just this Stipulus
I suit Thee



Poem You said that I “was Great” one Day - Emily Dickinson
