I had no time to hate

“I had no time to hate”

I had no time to hate, because

The grave would hinder me,

And life was not so ample I

Could finish enmity.

Nor had I time to love, but since

Some industry must be,

The little toil of love, I thought,

Was large enough for me.


Analysis

Analysis

  • I think that the poem, “I had no time to hate”, is about regret. I think that Dickinson regrets a time in her life that she didn’t have any love or any hate in her life.

  • The poem has end rhyme with “me” on line 2 and “enmity” on line 4.

  • The poem has internal rhyme with “industry” and “be” on line 6 and end rhyme again with “be” on line 6 and “me” on line 8
