Will There Really Be A "Morning"? - Poem by Emily Dickinson


Will there really be a "Morning"?
Is there such a thing as "Day"?
Could I see it from the mountains
If I were as tall as they?

Has it feet like Water lilies?
Has it feathers like a Bird?
Is it brought from famous countries
Of which I have never heard?

Oh some Scholar! Oh some Sailor!
Oh some Wise Men from the skies!
Please to tell a little Pilgrim
Where the place called "Morning" lies!

    The heart of this woman beats in every word she pens. That last stanza has to be the most well-written closure to a poem ever. (Report) Reply

    Will There Really Be A 'Morning'?
    Very 'avant guard' and daring for the times!
    Wonderfully written, romantically chimed.
