He ate and drank the precious Words Poem by Emily Dickinson

He ate and drank the precious Words

Rating: 5.0


He ate and drank the precious Words -
His Spirit grew robust -
He knew no more that he was poor,
Nor that his frame was Dust -

He danced along the dingy Days
And this Bequest of Wings
Was but a Book - What Liberty
A loosened spirit brings -

Emily Dickinson is unique in her poetry. Readers in Bangladesh like to read her works in English and also through Bengali Translation. I've translated a number of her poems into Bengali.
