Emily Jane Brontë

(30 July 1818 – 19 December 1848 / Thornton / Yorkshire)

Poems of Emily Jane Brontë

Plead For Me

Oh, thy bright eyes must answer now,
When Reason, with a scornful brow,
Is mocking at my overthrow!
Oh, thy sweet tongue must plead for me
And tell, why I have chosen thee!

Stern Reason is to judgment come,
Arrayed in all her forms of gloom:
Wilt thou, my advocate, be dumb?

[Hata Bildir]
