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

Part Two: Nature

LVIII


THE BEE is not afraid of me,
I know the butterfly;
The pretty people in the woods
Receive me cordially.
  
The brooks laugh louder when I come,        5
The breezes madder play.
Wherefore, mine eyes, thy silver mists?
Wherefore, O summer’s day?
