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

Will There Really Be A "Morning"?

Rating: 4.9


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.

Very 'avant guard' and daring for the times! Wonderfully written, romantically chimed.

Why does she refer to herself as a " Pilgrim" min the last stanza?
