(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

Longing is like the Seed

Longing is like the Seed
That wrestles in the Ground,
Believing if it intercede
It shall at length be found.

The Hour, and the Clime -
Each Circumstance unknown,
What Constancy must be achieved
Before it see the Sun!

Nice simile! One of her best poems!
She was phenomenal i love her words
