The Battle Fought Between The Soul - Poem by Emily Dickinson


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—
