Dickinson, Emily: A Day! Help! Help! Another Day! 42

Portre of Dickinson, Emily

A Day! Help! Help! Another Day! 42 (English)

A Day! Help! Help! Another Day!
Your prayers, oh Passer by!
From such a common ball as this
Might date a Victory!
From marshallings as simple
The flags of nations swang.
Steady — my soul: What issues
Upon thine arrow hang!*

*A sor valószínű a Szent Kristóf legendára utal.

"But the arrows hung in mid-air, nor could a
 single one of them touch Christopher."
