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

Part Two: Nature

LXXIX


THE MORNS are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
  
The maple wears a gayer scarf,        5
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I ’ll put a trinket on.
