Growth of Man - like Growth of Nature Poem by Emily Dickinson

Growth of Man - like Growth of Nature

Rating: 5.0


Growth of Man - like Growth of Nature -
Gravitates within -
Atmosphere, and Sun endorse it -
Bit it stir - alone -

Each - its difficult Ideal
Must achieve - Itself -
Through the solitary prowess
Of a Silent Life -

Effort - is the sole condition -
Patience of Itself -
Patience of opposing forces -
And intact Belief -

Looking on - is the Department
Of its Audience -
But Transaction - is assisted
By no Countenance -
