I Many Times Thought

From Immortal Poetry
Jump to: navigation, search

I many times thought peace had come
When peace was far away,
As wrecked men deem they sight the land
When far at sea they stay.

And struggle slacker, but to prove,
As hopelessly as I,
That many the fictitious shores
Before the harbor lie.

by Emily Dickinson.
