Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

The Battle fought between the Soul


594

The Battle fought between the Soul
And No Man—is the One
Of all the Battles prevalent—
By far the Greater One—

No News of it is had abroad—
Its Bodiless Campaign
Establishes, and terminates—
Invisible—Unknown&mdas h;

Nor History—record it—
As Legions of a Night
The Sunrise scatters—These endure—
Enact—and terminate—

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
