Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

May-Flower

Pink, small, and punctual,
Aromatic, low,
Covert in April,
Candid in May,

Dear to the moss,
Known by the knoll,
Next to the robin
In every human soul.

Bold little beauty,
Bedecked with thee,
Nature forswears
Antiquity.

[Hata Bildir]
