Bee! I'M Expecting You! - Poem by Emily Dickinson

1035

Bee! I'm expecting you!
Was saying Yesterday
To Somebody you know
That you were due—

The Frogs got Home last Week—
Are settled, and at work—
Birds, mostly back—
The Clover warm and thick—

You'll get my Letter by
The seventeenth; Reply
Or better, be with me—
Yours, Fly.

    I think this poem has something to do with death. Like the fly is a dead person, and the bee is a living person. (Report) Reply

    I love the creativity of writing from a Fly's point of view ;) (Report) Reply
