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

Part Five: The Single Hound

LXXXV


WE should not mind so small a flower,
Except it quiet bring
Our little garden that we lost
Back to the lawn again.
So spicy her Carnations red,        5
So drunken reel her Bees,
So silver steal a hundred Flutes
From out a hundred trees,
That whoso sees this little flower,
By faith may clear behold        10
The Bobolinks around the throne,
And Dandelions gold.
