Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part Two: Nature

LIII


PINK, small, and punctual.
Aromatic, low,
Covert in April,
Candid in May,
  
Dear to the moss,        5
Known by the knoll,
Next to the robin
In every human soul.
  
Bold little beauty,
Bedecked with thee,        10
Nature forswears
Antiquity.

(With the first Arbutus.)
