Dickinson, Emily: (A stagnant pleasure like a Pool)

Portre of Dickinson, Emily

(A stagnant pleasure like a Pool) (English)

A stagnant pleasure like a Pool
That lets its Rushes grow
Until they heedless tumble in
And make the Water slow

Impeding navigation bright
Of Shadows going down
Yet even this shall rouse itself
When freshets come along.
