Before The Ice Is In The Pools

Before The Ice Is In The Pools By Emily Dickinson! Emily Dickinson was an American poet who lived from 1830-1886. The first extent of her poetry was once no longer published till 4 years after her death. In this poem, it’s now not clear what the speaker was once ready for, however, some consider it should be Sue, Emily’s sister-in-law.

Before The Ice Is In The Pools

Before the ice is in the pools—
Before the skaters go,
Or any check at nightfall
Is tarnished by the snow—

Before the fields have finished,
Before the Christmas tree,
Wonder upon wonder
Will arrive to me!

What we touch the hems of
On a summer’s day—
What is only walking
Just a bridge away—

That which sings so—speaks so—
When there’s no one here—
Will the frock I wept in
Answer me to wear?
