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

Part Three: Love

VII


I HIDE myself within my flower,
  That wearing on your breast,
You, unsuspecting, wear me too—
And angels know the rest.
  
I hide myself within my flower,        5
That, fading from your vase,
You, unsuspecting, feel for me
Almost a loneliness.
