Emily Dickinson

Adrift! A Little Boat Adrift!

poem 30

Adrift! A little boat adrift! And night is coming down! Will no one guide a little boat Unto the nearest town? So Sailors say on yesterday Just as the dusk was brown One little boat gave up its strife And gurgled down and down. So angels say on yesterday Just as the dawn was red One little boat o’erspent with gales Retrimmed its masts redecked its sails And shot exultant on!
