Four Trees—upon A Solitary Acre - Poem by Emily Dickinson


Four Trees—upon a solitary Acre—
Without Design
Or Order, or Apparent Action—

The Sun—upon a Morning meets them—
The Wind—
No nearer Neighbor—have they—
But God—

The Acre gives them—Place—
They—Him—Attention of Passer by—
Of Shadow, or of Squirrel, haply—
Or Boy—

What Deed is Theirs unto the General Nature—
What Plan
They severally—retard—or further—
