"The Inundation of the Spring"

Random Poetry List XLI

The inundation of the Spring
Enlarges every soul —
It sweeps the tenement away
But leaves the Water whole —

In which the soul at first estranged —
Seeks faintly for its shore
But acclimated — pines no more
For that Peninsula —

Emily Dickinson (American, 1830-1886)
