Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (Эмили Дикинсон)


The Book of Martyrs


Read, sweet, how others strove,
Till we are stouter;
What they renounced,
Till we are less afraid;
How many times they bore
The faithful witness,
Till we are helped,
As if a kingdom cared!

Read then of faith
That shone above the fagot;
Clear strains of hymn
The river could not drown;
Brave names of men
And celestial women,
Passed out of record
Into renown!



Emily Elizabeth Dickinson's other poems:
  1. Exclusion
  2. Unreturning
  3. Whether My Bark Went Down at Sea
  4. Belshazzar Had a Letter
  5. Mine
