Emily Dickinson

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

Because the Bee may blameless hum


869

Because the Bee may blameless hum
For Thee a Bee do I become
List even unto Me.

Because the Flowers unafraid
May lift a look on thine, a Maid
Alway a Flower would be.

Nor Robins, Robins need not hide
When Thou upon their Crypts intrude
So Wings bestow on Me
Or Petals, or a Dower of Buzz
That Bee to ride, or Flower of Furze
I that way worship Thee.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

But if it had to perish twice,
