0' Soul, Can Poetic Art Heal Such Broken Heart

Her pen bled deep, and this her fans may yet agree
She felt a torrid hell, darkest of angry seas
Should her pen have conquered deepest of her fears
Could her poems have stopped flow of her falling tears?

Although we may stand aghast at sorrows once seen
Her agony in ink, shows true as Nature's green
Of a poet facing darkness, death and its gloom
Fully aware of life's end, its rest in the tomb.

Seeker of more, Death haunted her with mortal strife
With pains and dying of beloved ones in her life
0' soul, can poetic art heal such broken heart
In glory, renewal of spirit thus impart?

Her pen bled deep, and this her fans may yet agree
Immense sorrows and beauty in her poetry!

A beautiful sonnet and a great tribute. I saw a few translations of Emily Dickinson into Russian, not very successful. Amazing poetess. Alas, readers failed to appreciate in her time. Such is often the case for good poets.
